The support shown by the public for this project has been astounding.
I now hope that this will be the final report that we send, as Grass roots Sea Turtle Conservation project is almost...almost fully funded!
we have made good use of the investment - the hatchery has been more successful than ever before - with 32,367 baby turtles released safely back into the ocean, from 565 nests that had been rescued and successfully transferred into YOUR hatchery!
This was all thanks to the generous contributions you made, allowing the purchase and replacement of much needed, higher quality, longer lasting materials.
Of course none of this would be possible without our dedicated staff - who day in, day out are at the project, apart from their families, putting the turtles first. And without a doubt, I need to mention the 156 international volunteers who graced us with their presence, sweat, and man power throughout the 2014 season, completeing the structure of the hatchery and then protecting the delicate nests.
Truly, thank you.
I sincerely hope that the next report you recieve will be the last - that we can reach our goal and target, and save many more nests in the future, thanks to Global Giving.
