Figure S1. An example of raw data (open gray circles and gray path) and predicted movement trajectory and behavioral mode of a Kemp's ridley (Turtle ID # 125, tag 47562) tagged in Padre Island National Seashore.
Figure S2. Predicted turtle days using estimated coefficients derived using a generalized linear model with log transformation. The grid is divided into 25 × 25 km cells, with 100-m isobaths as a bounding layer.
