For the first time, Internet users around the world are able to track, in real time, the epic, trans-oceanic migration of a critically endangered leatherback turtle from her nesting grounds on the tiny Caribbean island of Anguilla, thanks to a groundbreaking project headed by the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) and the University of Exeter in Cornwall, UK.

Malliouhana, the first ever Anguillian turtle to be fitted with a satellite transmitter tag, is now over a month into an incredible migration across the Atlantic, having swum over 1,754km away from the island, at a speed of about 45kms per day, since leaving Anguilla
