Pemba Update – 29 March 2018

Pemba, the first Olive Ridley turtle to be satellite tagged in South Africa, was released from Mabibi on the KwaZulu-Natal North coast on 8th March 2018.   She underwent 4 years of rehabilitation by the Two Oceans Aquarium and uShaka Sea World.

Pemba is currently 425 nautical miles (787 kms) south of Cape Point and seems to be moving in an Easterly direction.  It is fascinating to watch her journey.
