Luria

Click on a the turtle or a circle location icon for date and any notes.


A green turtle encountered nesting on May 20, but tagged May 21 at 3:43 pm. Luria was waiting for researchers when they arrived on the beach.  It was mid-afternoon, so many small children and adults from the local community of Almond Beach were able to observe her as she was being tagged.  Luria was in almost perfect condition with a clean, really beautiful shell! She did fuss on occasion, clearly preferring to be out at sea rather than under the coconut trees in a tight box. She wasted little time getting to the safety of the ocean, once she was released.
