Marine biologists are keeping a close eye on the threatened and endangered sea turtles of Dry Tortugas National Park, 70 miles (113 kilometers) west of Key West, Fla. But to follow the turtles, scientists first have to tag them with state-of-the-art monitoring electronics. Wrestling a 400-pound (181-kg) sea turtle, such as Bond pictured above, out of the ocean is not for your average lab rat.
