A leatherback named “Eve”

Follow the journey of a leatherback sea turtle named “Eve” as she spends her time off the coast of Panama during nesting season. Five Turtle Time Turtlers spent a week in Panama with the Sea Turtle Conservancy, satellite tagging leatherback sea turtles. They christened one leatherback after Turtle Time director Eve Haverfield. “Eve” will be participating in the annual Tour de Turtles Marathon: A Sea Turtle Migration Marathon, or simply Tour de Turtles, is an annual online migration-tracking event hosted by the Caribbean Conservation Corporation. Endangered sea turtles are monitored using an attached but harmless satellite tracking device.
