Background

Summer was tagged on Sapelo Island, Georgia, and was released just after midnight on July 7th. She crawled onto the beach that night but did not nest. Our tagging team intercepted her as she was headed back to the ocean, securing the transmitters to her carapace at that time. According to our satellite data she may have nested the following night near her initial tagging location. Besides that one location she has provided very little quality data from the satellite transmitter thus far. This could be due to her spending very short time intervals at the water surface.
