Background

This turtle was captured at the southern estuary on Isla San Jose in the southern Gulf of California, Mexico and equipped with a Fastloc GPS satellite transmitter (Wildlife Computers MK10-AFB; PTT ID 52657) as part of a collaborative effort between University of California at Santa Cruz, Eastern Pacific Hawksbill Initiative, and NOAA-Southwest Fisheries Science Center.

The adult female measured 76.6 cm straight carapace length (81.1 cm curved carapace length), and is one of the largest hawksbill turtles ever captured as part of this project. After being equipped with the satellite tag the turtle was released back into the estuary on Isla San Jose
