Background

Coming ashore at around 8:30 pm on Tuesday, 24 July, staff fron Sea Turtle Conservation had to wait about 3 hours before this very large Green turtle selected a nesting site. After laying her nest, she was fitted with a satellite transmitter.

Named 'Darwina' and sponsored by Karen and Ken Miller. This turtle is the second turtle being tracked by STCB in 2007 and only the second Green Turtle tracked since STCB started placing transmitters back in 2003.

'Darwina' was measured at 95.5 cm (37.6 in) straight carapace length and weights approximately 140 kg (309 lb).
