Our Facebook page has lots of new pictures from the latest events in Boavista.

We had a very nice mid-season celebration on September 2nd at Cabral beach. Finally the teams from all the camps got together for a Barbecue and a football competition.

School in Nature had its second and third weekends of activities. On August 31st, 22 school kids from Joao Galego (9 to 12 years old) and their teacher Maria, went with the Turtle Foundation team to Canto beach for an afternoon of educational activities, beach clean up and turtle talks and walks at night. They learn more about the nesting sea turtles and the threats they face. On the following day, we all met at the main square of Joao Galego to paint a wall, talk about the importance of taking good care of our world and also to have fun with games and drawings.

And last weekend, was the time to kids from the communities of Boa Esperança and Rabil to join the School in Nature. 26 kids (3 to 12 years old), plus 3 local volunteers and 2 teachers from kindergarten spent 3 days and 2 nights in Boa Esperança camp with our teams. We all got our faces painted to participate of the World Clean up Day (September 15th) and do our bit by collecting the garbage at the beach. Theater plays, games, talks and videos exhibitions completed the educational weekend. They went back home happily after seeing 4 nesting turtles each group on the Saturday night patrol!
