Mojo's Tracks Tracking Logs
Mojo has been missing since the summer of 2009. I believe that his transmitter malfunctioned and that he is still happily living in the forested cove west of Earthshine where he had been for almost two years.
Click the photo link below to go to the MOJO'S TRACKS track logs. Each tracking day has its own page for easier viewing. On each page you will find the detail data of each tracking day, photos and a short video of Mojo's position and habitat at the time of location. Logs begin with the most recent and progress to the oldest as you click through the links at the bottom of each days page.

Please return often because as this study unfolds, I will update this page with more data, photos and movies documenting the journeys of Mojo the Eastern Box Turtle.
See if you can find Mojo in the above picture. Once you think you have found him click the pic for the answer.
Please contact us if have a box turtle that is local to the WNC area and is injured, displaced, in need of a little R & R or if you are interested in becoming a part of The Earthshine Turtle Tracks program.
