This turtle was found by rangers from the Emirates Marine Environment Group, who are key partners of this project and who have worked on turtle consrvation for several years. She measured 71cm in curved carapace length, and now carries a shiny flipper tag to let us identify her when she comes back at a future date. Now with the generous sponsorship from the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, she will be able to send us signals and help us identify migration routes and feeding grounds, so that we are in a better position to advise policy-makers on conservation priorities.
