dc.description.abstractUnder the Regional Tagging Programme on Sea Turtles, sea turtles in Malaysia were externally tagged on both their front flippers using Iconel tags. A total of 494 green turtles (Chelonia mydas) were tagged. A total of 217 turtles made their nesting returns after being tagged. The implementation of this regional tagging program, no doubt will be able to provide accurate information on the reproductive biology and population trends and dynamics of sea turtles. With this information, it certainly helps turtle experts to formulate conservation measures and management programs for the perpetuity of these animals.en
