Turtle migration directly influenced by drift experiences with ocean currents as hatc
 
New research has found that adult sea-turtle migrations and their selection of feeding sites are directly influenced by their past experiences as little hatchlings adrift in ocean currents. When they breed, adult sea turtles return to the beach where they were born. After breeding, adult sea turtles typically migrate several hundreds to thousands of kilometres to their feeding habitats. However, there has been little information about how turtles chose their feeding sites.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/scien...~4/97l-x6zchB4
