Helen was the first ever turtle to be tagged in Sri Lanka and was tagged after her 4th nest in the 2006 season. She was named after Helen Gilligan, a volunteer English Teacher who had been working for the TCP for 5 months and was due to leave shortly after the satellite tagging programme. Helen's tag was supported by a grant from the UK Government's Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) as a contribution to the Indian Ocean and South East Asian (IOSEA) Year of the Sea Turtle 2006.
