Limwamway on her way...

"Limwamway" (beautiful in Carolinian) female green turtle satellite tagged June 15, 2011 at Tank beach. All activities permited via USFWS and NMFS federal permits - this is why folks can get so close! Without a permit one must give turtles space to nest undisturbed. Tank beach has a history of high poaching pressure, so this tagging event is not only a testiment to the CNMI sea turtle program's hard work, but of the community's committment to conservation.

Kagman High School Students and Limwaway, excited for her release...
