Background

Aurora was named by Mrs. R. Dorman and Mrs. M. Taylor's fourth grade gifted class from Hollis Hand Elementary in LaGrange, Georgia. This name was chosen because it refers to the Northern Lights that can be seen in Canada.

Aurora has spent most of her time during the internesting period approximately 3-5 km off the middle of Cumberland Island. We have found she is a relatively easy turtle to track because she likes to spend a lot of time near the surface.
