Tour de Turtles

My name is "Arenita." I'm an adult female olive ridley sea turtle encountered nesting on August 26, 2008, on Las Bocanitas, El Salvador. I measured 71 cm in curved carapace (shell) length and 73.7 cm in curved carapace width.

A satellite transmitter was applied to my shell after I finished nesting. You can watch when I was released the next morning. Check out my marathon migration map, where you can follow along as I swim.

I'm being sponsored by Arenas del Pacifico and I'm swimming to raise awareness about the threat of Commerical Fisheries to sea turtles. Please help me raise awareness about my cause by supporting me!
