Green Turtle - Chelonia mydas - QA75003
4 November 2017
Raine Island
This turtle had not been seen previously by researchers so once she had finished laying on 4 November she had two titanium flipper tags applied as well as the satellite tag.
Her curved carapace length was 101.9cm
Between 4 November and 31 December 2017 she laid 5 clutches of eggs. When not laying, she moved between Raine Island Reef, an unnamed reef to the north and nearby Moulter Cay. She also attempted to nest on Moulter Cay, which is part of the Raine Island National Park.
Children from the Erub School will choose this turtle's name.
