Summary Female green turtles (Chelonia mydas) were monitored for signs of throat movements/oscillations when attempting to nest at Ascension Island in the S5outh Atlantic. Throat oscillations occurred during all stages of the nesting process, with the mean frequency ranging from 10.9 to 36.1 oscillations/min, while the mean breathing rate for different stages during nesting activity ranged from 1.3 to 2.8 breaths/min.
