Green sea turtles with transmitters go missing

Bhagwandas in DAWN:

KARACHI, illness May 3: The two green turtles on which satellite transmitters were installed in September 2006 for the mapping of their movement in the Arabian Sea have gone missing, nurse it emerged on Thursday.

The data sent in by the transmitters of the turtles, which were named Chandni III and Chandni IV, was last recorded in November 2006, sources told Dawn.

This was the second attempt by Pakistan at the mapping of the movement of the green turtles. In August 2001, two turtles, named Chandni I and Chandni II, were mounted with satellite transmitters. They went missing when shortly after the Sept 11 attacks on US soil the Arabian Sea played host to American warships launching attacks on Afghanistan.
