hey, after a month of foraging, Sweetpea is shifting south to the Keys. What's she up to? She's taken a second foraging residency, now in Key West National Wildlife Refuge on the seagrass flats north of Boca Grande Key. 11/20/07 Sweetpea ventured west of the Marquesas, circumnavigated the island, and by 11/27 returned to her previous center of activity near Boca Grande Key. 12/10/07 moved again to west of the Marquesas.

Sweet Pea measures 98.9 cm curved carapace length and is the first green turtle tagged in Sarasota County. She was encountered on a false crawl, and will return soon to nest. She carried a time depth recorder to obtain information on her dive behavior.
