The Big Day!

Thanks for all the good wishes and interest we have received from friends, family, past and present volunteers and staff. The news from the field was that they had a Minute's Applause at 09:30 yesterday as Stephanny was taking the stage in Belize. We know everyone is anxious to know how things went so we writing here every spare minute I have this week - a blog-athon for conference week!

The talk ran through all aspects of the past three years, from management decisions to the introduction of the volunteer workforce; some basic results and information, including the decreasing in poaching; the community work we do and the future directions for the program.

The presentation was well attended and received some interest from projects in other countries, including a project in Nicaragua, including questions about beach erosion and community involvement.

Well done to Steph and and huge thanks to all staff and volunteers from GVI and COTERC who have been involved.
