This adult female green was tagged by a joint team comprising Ministry of Environment and Climate Affairs, 5Oceans, ESO and EWS-WWF. Her name, Nouf, was kindly chosen by H.E Mohammed Bin Salem Al Tobi, Minister of Environment and Climate Affairs.
She measured 92.1 cm in curved carapace length, and now carries a satellite transmitter (number 163592) to let us know of her use of nearshore waters during he interesting period (between this and subsequent nests), and later of her migration path and foraging grounds. This data will help us determine important habitat which might need conservation and/or management efforts. She also carries metal flipper tag number R62040 on her left front flipper.
