Chameleon is a young female green turtle which is helping us identify where her foraging grounds are once she leaves Mantanani. Our past research on Mantanani island revealed that the turtles do not stay there for more than a few years and we want to know where she lives after this. She was tagged with number MY0157, and now has a shiny satellite transmitter courtesy of the Shell (Malaysia) Foundation to help identify her new foraging grounds.
