Paulina was the first turtle to be tagged but unfortunately she stopped transmitting at the beginning of October. Although we will never know exactly where she was going, it looks like she may have been heading in the same direction as Adamanay.
Adamanay has settled at a foraging area near the Miskito Cays, an area of islands, islets and reefs off the coast of Nicaragua. One of the earliest turtles to be tagged, Adamanay headed southwest from the Dominican Republic and has been in the cays since early November.
Blanquita Turbi headed west and stopped off around Jaragua National Park, where she has stayed for the last three months. This area of the Dominican Republic is also home to Blanco, the project field assistant who Blanquita is named after!
Mirabal is the latest, and last, turtle to be tagged in the Dominican Republic and she started her journey a bit differently from the other turtles by heading east. She passed south of Isla Mona, an important regional sea turtle nesting area, at the beginning of January and seemed to be heading towards Puerto Rico when, unfortunately, she stopped transmitting.
