Jurabi is a female green turtle who was tagged after a nesting attempt on Trisel Beach at Ningaloo. She was released at 0245 AM.
Jurabi measured 103.8 cm CCL. We attached new flipper tags WB9359 (left) and WB9358 (right). She had an existing flipper tag, which was attached way back in 1992 - when she was 101 cm at the time.
The name Jurabi was nominated by Cody from Exmouth, and won the inaugural Ningaloo Outlook naming competition. Cody was able to join us on the beach and see a hatchling reach the ocean.
