Cumulative Distance refers to how far the turtle has actually travelled since it was first tagged. Straight Line Distance refers to the distance between where the turtle was first tagged and its current position in a straight line.
 

Notes: Calypso stayed close to Nevis after her release, most likely nesting again. After spending some time between St. Kitts and Nevis, she has taken off into the Caribbean Sea. After looking like she would head into the northwestern corner of the Caribbean, Calypso has turned south and is about 130 km (81 miles) north of Mango's feeding grounds!
