Check out this video of our green sea turtle boat hit survivor, Izzy, foraging in a large tank during a pre-release observational period. Note the silver “bling” on her right front and left rear flippers. In addition to a PIT microchip inserted under the shoulder region, these tags have unique identification codes that will allow facilities to track back Izzy’s history in the event that she ever ends up in a captive environment again. But, we hope she’ll live out the rest of her life happily munching away in a bed of seemingly endless seagrass! We won’t be offended if she doesn’t keep in touch!
