Sivataarvik (pronounced Sea-va-tar-vick) means 'Saturday' in Inuktitut for the day of the week she was banded. Inuktitut is one of the Inuit languages of Nunavut in northern Canada where Sivataarvik's breeding grounds are located. The transmitter that Sivataarvik is wearing was originally deployed on Marruuk but fell off and was found and re-deployed on a new bird (Marruuk did not want to be recaptured!).

SEATURTLE.ORG collaborates with Argos to help scientists and conservationists manage and analyse their valuable animal tracking data.
