The researchers are checking the turtles’ health and taking measurements, and using laparoscopy to check the sex of each turtle. They want to find out if the females are carrying eggs, or if they have laid eggs.Tracking devices are attached to the turtles’ shells, and the data will later be collected.

The data will help conservationists know where more resources are needed to help protect the endangered species. Green turtles experience damaging pollution and dangerous boat traffic in the Persian Gulf. Some countries in the region currently lack measures to protect the turtles.

Jellyfish paralyze prey using neurotoxins in their tentacles, but the turtle does not seem to be affected. It closes its eyes and uses its flipper as a shield from the jellyfish’s stinging tentacles. Green sea turtles are endangered. Their main threat is overexploitation of eggs from the beaches they are laid on. Green sea turtles are predominately herbivorous, but juveniles have been known to feed on jellyfish.
