Courtenay was carefully tagged with the latest in satellite tag
technology providing us with the first opportunity to follow the
long term movements of these threatened species. Please keep
checking back frequently to follow Courtenay’s movements, which
will be updated every few days as her satellite tag continues
to send us real-time tracking data.
