Dona Mariquinha was photographed on December 16 at the Comboios beach. This turtle had already been captured 6 times before. She nested 3 times after the installation of the transmitter and then migrated to the south of Brazil. After a period in the south coast of Rio Grande do Sul (BRA), she is now between the continental waters of Uruguay and Argentina.
