MEXICO CITY - Mexican scientists released on a beach of the northwestern state of Sinaloa three sea turtles in whose shells satellite tracking devices had been installed for the purpose of monitoring their migratory routes, the National Polytechnic Institute, or IPN, said.

The scientists, members of IPN's Interdisciplinary Research Center, Sinaloa Unit, set the sea turtles free on Playa Las Glorias beach in the city of Guasave, the institute said in a statement.

These three specimens of the species Caretta caretta - loggerhead sea turtles - were caught in order to stick on their shells, with epoxy resin adhesive, transmitters connected to the ARGOS satellite system that will allow them to be tracked and their whereabouts known for a year.

This week the international website www.seaturtle.org will post news about the "Loggerhead turtles from the Gulf of California," so that the specimens called Umi, Baawe and La Hija del Señor can be followed.
