From: Bahamas connection: residence areas selected by breeding female loggerheads tagged in Dry Tortugas National Park, USA

Figure 6

Inter-annual repeatability of residence areas. Residence areas for four loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta) recaptured 2–3 years after initial capture in Dry Tortugas National Park (DRTO). Turtle E’s points from 2010 did not produce a KDE or MCP, so the last filtered location received from that tracking period is shown as a small square. 50% Kernel Density Estimates (KDE) outlines are shown for the other three turtles for both tracking years with centroids (matching colored points). The distance between KDE centroid locations is 1.5 km for turtle G/G*, 2.9 km for L/L*, and 0.7 km for turtle B/B*.
