Last sunset for our turtle friends

Did you know that turtles lift each other up? In a nest, the strongest hatchlings are on the bottom. With their eyes still closed, with no idea what sunshine is, they will push their brothers and sisters above so they can break through the sand and start their journey in life. They will then makeContinue reading “Last sunset for our turtle friends”

Through the looking glass and a little bit more

After picking up the questions posted by Mrs. Bean for the Outstanding Blogging Award, here we are receiving the same nomination from Sunny Days with Juliette. Thank you for remembering us, Juliette!

The worst has happened

I have been delaying this post for two weeks now, in false hope and denial, but the truth is, we have COVID-19 community transmission here in our town for the first time, a year after the pandemic began. We are okay, of course, but the poorer communities are not. It is more heartbreaking that thereContinue reading “The worst has happened”

The turtles are unstoppable

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.

Dear turtle friends, your eggs are now turtles

Since we shared our pawikan conservation project in Pag-asa, Bagac, Bataan, The Philippines, over 3000 baby turtles, locally known as pawikan, have hatched and were released back into the sea. We cannot say it enough, but thank you very much for your support!

Updates for our turtle friends and a call to spread awareness

Thank you everyone for supporting the nesting turtles of Pag-asa, Bagac, Bataan, The Philippines. Because of your help, 3,250 turtle eggs have been adopted in two weeks, and we still have sponsors for 550 more.

2021: The year of engagement?

This year is drawing to a close, and so it is time to think about the next. Let’s not fool ourselves: the challenges of 2020 are not just going to disappear as we turn to 2021. But a new year always comes with an opportunity to set an intention, and I would like to suggestContinue reading “2021: The year of engagement?”

We can save more turtles together

It is early in the morning and I am jumping around the rafters of the boats parked on our beachfront. My father is inspecting our fence. I am seven years old. Two men approach Father. Between them is a turtle as big as I am, which they were holding captive, one flipper each. The otherContinue reading “We can save more turtles together”
