On 22 February 2015, a single specimen of Caretta caretta was identified in surface waters about 45 nm west of Tofino, British Columbia. The animal's carapace was covered with algae, but the specimen was identified based on shell shape, head size, and the color of its parietal and interparietal scales. This record confirms that 4 sea turtle species range into British Columbia's coastal waters.
