Short summary
We report on the oxygen isotope signatures in green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas) barnacles (Platylepas sp.) to suggest likely regional movement patterns by mapping these onto a predictive oxygen isotope map of the Pacific. Exploring barnacle proxies potential relevance as an alternative tool with which to study green sea turtle migration, we find that these could complement traditional methods of studying connectivity between turtle populations and help inform more effective conservation policy.
