Ariel was carefully tagged with the latest in satellite tag technology providing us with the first opportunity to follow the long term movements of these threatened species. Please keep checking back frequently to follow Ariel’s movements, which will be updated every few days as her satellite tag continues to send us real-time tracking data.
