Project Report | Nov 27, 2023
Nesting season almost over and Giving Tuesday!

Nesting season is almost over, so the less busy months are coming. The last period was still very busy though. Below a small summary of the activities that we have done, besides our regular monitoring. But first let us ask to donate and ask your family/friends to donate today on Giving Tuesday!

 

Giving Tuesday

You might know that we solely rely on donations to work on our mission. Not just the precious time our volunteers give us, we also need funds to do our work. We greatly appreciate any donation you may have given us. Today, this Giving Tuesday, November 28, we need your support more than ever.

So, we’re proud to be joining thousands of changemaking organizations on Nov. 28 for GivingTuesday! GivingTuesday is a global day of giving with the ultimate goal of building a more just and generous world. 

The funds we raise on GivingTuesday will go to helping and treating sea turtles around Curaçao and do necessary research in order to protect them and their habitat. We’d love if you would consider supporting our mission & helping us raise funds.

 

Research in Fibropapillomatosis

As mentioned in an earlier report we are doing research in tumor growth on FP infected turtles in certain bays of Curacao. Last week Professor of Biology Manuela Tripepi of Jefferson University in Philadelphia was on the island again. Some of the project turtles were caught and measured again. And 1 of them now has a GPS tracker on his carapace to have a better understanding of their where-abouts.

 

Large training session at Ascension

Saturday 25th of November we had a large training session with our partners Citro, Coastguard, Uniek Curacao and Carmabi. Besides a netting session in which turtles are caught and measured, we trained our volunteers extra in crowdhandling, sargasso training (sargussum weed enters this bay twice a year. Turtles get trapped and have trouble to get air, so they need our help) and even a human rescue with a helicopter. The day was a success: it was very insightful for both us as our partners.

 

Monthly donations

STCC’s work is not possible without the support of people like you. That’s why I’m asking you to join our team as a monthly donor. We will not be able to rescue the endangered turtles around Curacao without your continued support.
When you commit to a monthly gift, GlobalGiving will match your fourth consecutive donation 100%! With your sustainable contribution, you’re helping us build a solid foundation that will grow our impact.
We’d love it if you join Sea Turtle Conservation Curacao as a monthly donor. If you become a sustained contributor today, GlobalGiving will match your first monthly contribution in March 2024.
Thank you so much for being a part of the STCC family.

Gratefully yours,
Fedde Burgers

Chairman of the board of STCC
