Naming turtles

One of the really fun things about being a sea turtle researcher is that you get to name sea turtles! When we tag new nesters, in order to refer to the turtle in a different way than just “turtle EES 962” we also name the turtle. It makes it really fun and exciting to then “follow” your turtle and see how regularly she nests.

If you could name a wild sea turtle, which name would you pick?
