Kiko is off on a post nesting migration. As she leaves the edge of the West Florida Shelf and encounters the strong flow of the Loop Current, will she follow the paths of other turtles who have come this way? Compare Kiko's map with Bessie and MC who seem to be on roughly similar journeys.
Kiko is in Cuba, within Havana province between Mariel and Cabanas. Unfortunately, Kiko's final locations are from a fishing village so it is likely that the transmitter detached or Kiko was killed and the transmitter discarded with the shell.

Kiko has nested earlier this season on Casey Key. She is a small turtle measured at 86.3 cm curved carapace length. She returned to the water just as a thunderstorm broke, and all the turtle workers got soaked.
