Named in honor of Rainn Wilson and his support for sea turtle conservation. The turtle named 'Rainn' is an adult loggerhead and was rescued on Nov 3, 2020. Under treatment by staff at the Gumbo Limbo Nature Center Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Facility, Rainn started eating and becoming more active within a week of arrival. On January 26, 2021, Rainn was released with a satellite transmitter.

On average, transmitters will send signals for around 1 year from the time the turtle is released. Sometimes it can be 2 years, and sometimes it can be less than a year. The turtle icon location point represents the most recent location received for this turtle. It is not uncommon for a transmitter to skip a day or two due to the turtle's behavior or biofouling on the transmitter or antenna. This map is automatically updated with new points as soon as they are received by the Sea Turtle Conservancy. If the most recent point is more than two months old, then the transmitter is most likely no longer working.
