Rickie is an adult female leatherback sea turtle encountered nesting on June 15, 2006, in Zone 2 on Chiriquí Beach in Panama. She measured 150 cm in curved carapace (shell) length, slightly smaller than the average leatherback female seen on Chiriquí Beach. She had first been flipper tagged with metal flipper tags at Long Beach, Panama on April 20, 2006.

She then nested two more times at Long Beach. She then nested once at Chiriquí Beach previous to June 15th. A harness with a satellite transmitter was applied after nesting. Rickie was named by the transmitter sponsor, The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk, CT.
