Turtle 23098 was part of a busy night - that night we tagged 3 turtles! She was one of two turtles that already had flipper tags, meaning she had been seen nesting farther north in Gabon on a previous year - very exciting! Since she's been tagged, she's come back to land several more times, once very close to where she was originally tagged! She seems to be a bit of a 'home-body'.
