This adult female green turtle was collected using a large beach seine net off the coast of Ras al Khaimah, in collaboration with the Environment Protection and Development Authority - Rak AL Khaimah. After a quick laparoscopic inspection the turtle was found to be an adult female in reproductive condition, and we hope she will migrate to lay eggs later in 2017. She carries flipper tags 0416 on the right side and 0417 on the left, and measures 82.3 cm in carapace length.
