RRR695 "Slabby" (RRR695) is a sub-adult loggerhead that stranded alive in the surf off Mustang Island, TX on 22 August 2008 and was rehabilitated by the Animal Rehabilitation Keep program (ARK) at the University of Texas Marine Science Institute (UTMSI) in Port Aransas, TX. This turtle was outfitted with a KiwiSat 101 satellite transmitter by Sea Turtle and Fisheries Ecology Research Lab personnel from Texas A&M University at Galveston on 27 October 2008. Slabby was released approximately 8 miles (13 km) offshore of Port Aransas by Tony Amos (ARK & UTMSI) on 29 October 2008.
Slabby was named by ARK personnel in reference to its stranding location near Slab "B" in Mustang Island State Park. Special thanks go to Tony Amos for providing this turtle for satellite tagging and releasing it. Slabby is the fourth sea turtle satellite tagged and tracked by STFERL in collaboration with Tony Amos and ARK. The previous three included "Hook", "Lydia Ann" (both loggerheads) and "Heady" (green turtle).

SEATURTLE.ORG collaborates with Argos to help scientists and conservationists manage and analyse their valuable animal tracking data.
