After some challenging times with COVID-19 lockdown, an unprecedented sargassum crisis, all 2020 internships being cancelled and a change in staff, the new normal for STCC is cristalizing. Hans Pleij was hired as the new field coordinator and is finding his way in managing all the field activities. And there are quite a lot.
Besides ensuring that the nestmonitoring is carried out 3 times a week at the different routes and the in water health checks, there are also some turtles in the care of the Seaquarium and at the veterinary practice. These turtles require intensive care, which means that on a weekly basis 2000 liter of fresh sea water should be brought to the vet and regular lettuce drop offs should be done at both locations. The first dozen of nesting activities have been registered and some of the volunteers now got some additional field experience.
For the summer holiday a fun and educational kids program was designed, which will start shortly. And the STCC documentary that is being made by 'Turtle & Ray' is nearing the final phase. This goes for the annual report of 2019 as well.
Last month the new website was launched and if you haven't yet seen it, please check it out. We're really proud of it!
