We vividly remember the first time we posted about our turtle advocacy last season. We weren’t sure if it was the right thing to do. Your blog friendship is more than enough for us and we didn’t know if asking for donations for the turtles crosses a line.
But Markus said, “This is about the turtles and not about us. This is a sincere grassroots project and it is not fair to take their right to support a great cause. They can decide how to take action. All we can do is speak for the turtles.”
He was right. We honestly did not expect anything but your support was overwhelming. We cannot thank you enough!
This season, we were so proud to report the progress that the Pag-asa Pawikan Protection and Conservation Center made in just one year, and once more humbly asked for your help in supporting the turtles of our small community hatchery.
To Michelle, Betty, Brad, Sean, Rebecca, Ashley, and Lyn – thank you very much for adopting nests! We cannot thank you enough. We know you have plenty of obligations but you still chose to help the turtles. We appreciate you.
What you did is not just about saving the turtle eggs but also motivating and validating the efforts of the volunteers. They work tirelessly for the turtles without asking for anything in return. Your belief in the turtles, your belief in what they do mean everything to us.
Thank you for being a part of our community. Thank you for supporting us from halfway around the world. We cannot wait to welcome your hatchlings into the world and send them back to the sea where they can hopefully roam free for the next 100 years.
Together, we can save more turtles and empower the community. Thank you. People like you keep us going!
Together, we can save more sea turtles.
Thank you for supporting the work of the Pag-asa Pawikan Protection and Conservation Center. Because of your help, there is over 300% increase in hatchlings from last y
