It has been an incredibly busy week here at the tiny house, but there is always room for turtle updates. Dear friends, your babies are unstoppable! We have more and more turtles.
Over 6,000 have been released and more nests are hatching every day. We wish you are here to witness it – breathtaking, literally. A small beak, a closed eye, maybe a pair of heads, still and tired from making the climb from under the sand. Magic. Every bit magic.
More turtles from the nests of our personal friends and families have been released, and so from our blog friends Kathy, Rebecca, Brad, Toni, And Irene. We appreciate you so much. Of course, we will give an update for the rest of you wonderful people that adopted nests. Please stay tuned!
How can we not protect these magnificent creatures? To exist beside them is a privilege. And we cannot thank you enough for your love and support, not only of the turtles but also of our local community.
It makes a big difference, you validating their efforts. As mentioned, this is the poorest community in this town, which is already a third-class municipality in a third-world country. The people are mostly timid but every time we appreciate their work with the turtles, they stand a little taller and smile a lot wider.
Your support lifts their spirit. It reminds them that being a decent person has nothing to do with income, that they can take pride and gain confidence from their honorable actions in protecting the turtles, in saving the seas. There is a lot to be done here but pawikan conservation is a great start!
We will say it again and again. We cannot thank you enough for your support. You have given the turtles and this community so much. You did not just give them $10. No. You have given them hope.
