You can track the progress of Margaret, a satellite tagged leatherback sea turtle! Margaret was satellite tagged on August in the waters off Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. Because Margaret already had flipper tags when she was captured, we know she nested previously in Trinidad.

Margaret successfully completed her migration from Nova Scotia, Canada, to Grande Riviere, Trinidad, where she was found nesting early on the morning of March 22, 2014. We thank all the people and organizations in Trinidad who helped relocate Margaret and recover her tag.
