Background

The beautiful very dark coloured shell of a hawksbill stood out from the beachrock as she was attempting to climb and find a place to nest. Unfortunately, it possibly wasn't the best place to choose to nest with logs also blocking her way. She didn't lay her eggs but we did attach a satellite tracker to her before she headed back to the sea.

She has originally found nesting and tagged on Milman Island in February, 2008.

With limited amounts of algae and only a few barnacles on her shell, does she reside on a beautiful coral reef somewhere further north of Milman Island?


Released on 6 February 2017.
