She came back on 26 August 2008 for her third nesting at Balik Batu, an adjacent beach to Kem Terendak, but by the time we arrived, she had already been moved from the nest pit she made and her eggs poached by the villagers. However, she crawled safely back to sea that night and returned to nest twice after that, including her final nest for the season.
She has since swam south, travelling out of the straits of Melaka and into Indonesian waters, very close to Pulau Sugi in the Riau Archipelago, which is currently her foraging home.
