Cecil was given her name through a Mote Marine Laboratory contest.
Give our regards to the Space Coast, Cecil.
Who's Cecil, you ask. Why, she's the green sea turtle named by Sarasota's Carol Bishop this month in a recent contest promoted by Mote Marine Laboratory. Tagged with a satellite tracker in mid-July on Casey Key, Cecil most recently pinged in the Indian River Lagoon, just south of Kennedy Space Center on Florida's east coast.
Cecil and seven turtles can be followed on Mote.org.
