Biography

MY4660/MY4401 was deployed with a satellite transmitter on her third recorded and final nesting at Padang Kemunting on 12 July 2008. This is the first year where WWF-Malaysia started a monitoring and tagging programme at Padang Kemunting.

She headed straight back to sea soon after nesting that day, and she has since reached her feeding grounds, which the satellites have narrowed it close to the southern islands of Singapore.
