Bouncing back from COVID

freshly painted cabins!
freshly painted cabins!

We face this season with great enthusiasm but with hesitation, to advance in the conservation of sea turtles and their critical habitats,  in the midst of a difficult social and economic situation for the Costa Rican, and especially coastal,  society.

 GG's vital resources have allowed us to paint the station cabins; change the roofs damaged by sea salt;  fix the solar panel to power the project's electronic equipment (such as the microchip scanner for chips installed on the turtles). 

It has also allowed us to buy some kitchen equipment such as a new stove and cutlery for 30 people. These resources have also made it possible to repair the outboard motor starter and give our boat complete maintenance, with which we can not only go out to civilization to buy supplies but also to bring volunteers to support us.

Thanks to these resources we have been able to recruit 16 research assistants, employ a beach coordinator and plan so that at least during April we can have a workforce of about 20 volunteers. During February and March we have also been able to give a little help in food to some people in the community who have supported us with their volunteer work in the construction of the hatchery.

To date and since March 1, we have patrolled the beach and achieved the protection of more than 10 leatherback turtle nests, and it seems that due to this early number of nests,  we will be facing a good season thanks to YOUR support!
