I'm an adult female leatherback sea turtle encountered nesting on May 27, 2011, in Zone 6 on Chiriquí Beach in Panama. I measured 164 cm in curved carapace (shell) length and 111 cm curved carapace width.
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 Grooveshark.com. I'm swimming to raise awarness about the threat of Commercial Longline Fisheries to sea turtles. Please help me raise awareness about my cause by supporting me!
