I'm an adult female leatherback sea turtle encountered nesting on Galibi beach, Suriname. I measured 159 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 the WWF Guianas. I'm swimming to raise awarness about the threat of Invasive Species Predation to sea turtles. Please help me raise awareness about my cause by supporting me!
