Notes: Luna finished 4th in the 2009 Tour de Turtles. Her transmitter appears to no longer be sending signals. Her last know location was off the Mid-Atlantic coast of the United States.
Update: Luna has been seen nesting at Chiriquí Beach during the start of the 2011 nesting season. We were all happy to see her again!
