Found her!

Last night at around 1:00am, we got the familiar and consistent beep-beep-beep-beepbeep-beep of Shehyn’s VHF tag. Her satellite transmitter led us to St. Lucie County at the start of the evening and from there we were able to determine her location offshore by listening to the beeps from her VHF tag. Every few minutes we would hear a short beep-beep indicating she was at the surface. We were able to narrow down her location when suddenly we heard the constant beep indicating she had emerged. She nested 34 km away from where we originally attached her transmitter, a slightly larger range for her. We removed her transmitter and we’re excited to start analyzing data. We’ll continue to provide updates from her 9 day, 340 km journey.
