Tour de Turtles

My name is "Hibiscus." I'm an adult female hawksbill sea turtle encountered nesting on July 21, 2008, on Jones Bay beach on the island of Nevis. I measure 84.0 cm in curved carapace (shell) length and 79 cm in curved carapace width.

A satellite transmitter was applied to my shell to me 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 the Four Seasons Resort Nevis and I'm swimming to raise awarness about the threat of Illegal Shell Trade to sea turtles. Please help me raise awareness about my cause by supporting me!
