Pajarita is named after the island she was nesting on during her capture, Isla Pajarito. A robust female measuring 74 cm in length (CCL) and 144 lbs, Pajarita received a transmitter courtesy of NOAA with the hopes of shedding light on her migratory route and feeding grounds. Attachment of this tag would not have been possible without the incredible local support of the Comité de Desarrollo Empresarial y Medioambiental de Puerto Parada (CODEPA), Fundación Zoológica de El Salvador (FUNZEL), and Instituto de Ciencias del Mar y Limnología de la Universidad de El Salvador (ICMARES).
