Murjana emerged early in the evening, shortly after dark, and was found by rangers from the Ministry of Environment in Qatar. Measuring 71cm in curved carapace length, she now carries tags (QU0430 and QU0431) affixed by the rangers from Qatar University's Environmental Studies Centre, and joins five other turtles from Qatar which will be sending signals to help us identify important migration routes and the location of turtle feeding grounds.
