My name is "Amyja." I'm an adult female green sea turtle encountered nesting on Galibi Beach, Suriname. I measured 112 cm in curved carapace (shell) length.

A satellite transmitter was applied to my shell after I finished nesting. You can view a slideshow of the attachment and release. Check out my marathon migration map, where you can follow along as I swim.

I'm being sponsored by WWF - Guianas. I'm swimming to raise awarness about the threat of Harvest - Meat for Consumption to sea turtles. Please help me raise awareness about my cause by supporting me!
