In 1996, this turtle, caught in Mexico, was given a nameAdelitaand a satellite tag was attached to her shell. Then she was set free in the Pacific Ocean. Adelitas astonishing journey home led to a new understanding of sea turtles and inspired changes that have made the world a better place for them.
