 ::: Remarks :::
Zoe, a healthy adult female leatherback, was incidentally captured by an entaglement net in the Rio de la Plata estuary, Uruguay. Local fishermen brought the turtle to the coast and immediately contacted members of the Karumbé project.

A satellite tag from PRICTMA (Argentina) was then brought from Buenos Aires, making possible to deploy the transmitter on the turtle after a tremendous team effort from both countries. Zoe's transmitter was attached as part of a cooperative project between Proyecto Karumbé and PRICTMA.
