…until the official start of the Turtle Foundation project season 2013 on Boavista!!! The TF headquarters resemble a beehive these days with people busily getting the equipment ready for the beach camps, receiving arriving staff and volunteers, finalizing training material and data collection tools. By the 15th of June we want to have all three project sites Boa Esperanca, Lacacao and Fundo das Figueiras to be up and running and ready for hopefully many turtles.

An extra portion of motivation we gained from attending the annual meeting of the national Turtle Conservation Network TAOLA, were we could meet our colleagues from other NGOs and exchange data, ideas and strategies for a successful season. Well then, let the turtles come…
