Arribada in Costa Rica
Ana Chaves, one of the best specialist on the Ridley turtle, living in Ostional since several years, is assigned by the costarican government to study the cancer that hit more and more adult turtles. The disease appeared a five years ago. In order to understand the mystery of their migration, Ana puts a transmitter-receiver on a turtle. One of those equipment allowed her to follow a turtle during a journey of 4000 KM before she lost the signal. (image by Olivier Blaise)
