I'm an adult female loggerhead sea turtle encountered nesting the morning of July 28, 2013 on the beach in the Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge, Florida. I measure 103 cm in curved carapace (shell) length.

A satellite transmitter will be applied to my shell after I finished nesting. Check out my marathon migration map, where you can follow along as I swim.

I was named by my sponsor, Ripley's Aquariums, after their founder Robert Ripley, a man who was a global traveler and highly migratory, just like sea turtles. I am swimming to raise awareness about the threat of poor water quality. Please help me raise awareness about my cause by supporting me!
