Mumble's tag is sponsored by the Jeniam Foundation, via a grant to New Canaan Country School. Mumble laid six nests, spread from Casey Key north to Anna Maria Island. We thank the Anna Maria Island Turtle Watch for their assistance in verifying these nests and collecting the nest contents for heavy metal analysis and genetic studies.

Background

Mumble was named by New Canaan Country School and she laid the first loggerhead nest of the year on Casey Key. She was not tagged so it is a mystery where she might go at the end of the nesting seasons. Her shell was very clean except for a single big turtle barnacle (Chelonibia) which was removed for a study of epibiota. Mumble was tagged early in the season so that we can determine her clutch frequency (= how many nests she will lay this season).
Mumble is 95.1 cm notch to tip. Tag is a Kiwisat 101, on continuously for 60 days, then duty cycled 8 hr on/16 hr. off.
