Along the way, it appers she stopped to nest a few times in Florida. Although her transmitter stopped transmitting good signals for a while, she's has started transmitting good signals regularly once again. Her journey has been a very interesting to watch and we look forward to seeing where she goes next!

Background

Bev suffered from a condition that prevented her from opening her mouth to feed properly. She was initially treated during the summer of 2006 at Gulf World in Panama City Beach and then transferred to the Georgia Sea Turtle Center on Jekyll Island, GA, for physical therapy and further treatment. She was successfully rehabilitated to the point where she could easily capture and eat large natural prey items such as blue crabs and horseshoe crabs.

Bevelyn was released on November 19, 2007 on the Florida Panhandle just west of Panama City Beach, FL.
