Turtle 13362 was the turtle who closest to the field camp! Only about 1 mile from home, we found her while she was still nesting, and early in the evening - only about 9:30 pm! She is gorgeous - truly a dark olive color. She was one of only two turtles who already had flipper tags, meaning that she had been seen before nesting in Gabon, but farther north in the park!
