'Qatarina', as this turtle is now known, was proudly sponsored by the College of the North Atlantic, Qatar, who have been long-term project sponsors and great friends of turtles in the Gulf. She joins a cadre of turtles swimming in the Gulf providing important habitat and migration information which feeds conservation programmes in the region. She emerged to nest at 19:00 on the evening of 7th March, and proceeded to lay 87 eggs before we attached a new satellite transmitter, and she got a new flipper tag (QU0418) courtesy of the Qatar University rangers.
