David is a sub-adult (CCL=71.9cm) green turtle captured at Southern Bush, just south of the Windward Going Through passage between Middle and East Caicos. The turtle was captured by TCI Turtle Project Officer Amdeep Sanghera on a sampling trip with legendary TCI turtle fishers Gilbert Jennings and Dave Clare. The turtle is fitted with a Sirtrack Fastloc tag to determine its fine scale movements in its tidal foraging habitat. The purchase and deployment of this tag is supported by the British Chelonia Group, with additional project support from the People's Trust for Endangered Species.
