A satellite transmitter (model KIWISAT 101) was attached to her carapace soon after her second nesting on 5 August 2007, and she was released at 4am. She returned weeks later for her third nesting on 19 August 2007, her fourth on 1 September 2007 and fifth on 16 September 2007. Since starting her voyage back to her foraging grounds, she has revealed to us that the waters south of Pulau Bintan will be her home until her next nesting season years from now.
