Tour de Turtles

My name is "Roxana." I'm an adult female green sea turtle encountered nesting on the beach in Tortuguero, Costa Rica in June, 2000. I measure 101.1 cm in curved carapace (shell) length.

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 Caribbean Conservation Corporation and I'm swimming to raise awarness about the threat of Harvest for Consumption to sea turtles. Please help me raise awareness about my cause by supporting me!
