Be the difference!

The leatherback turtle season is just getting underway - the largest marine turtle in the world and, evolutionary speaking, over 100 million years old!

These huge sea turtles nest just meters from base between March and June - fitting perfectly with our upcoming phase! And guess what...there are still a few spots left!

We've already recorded three species of marine turtle on the beach this year, those early arrivals a sign of things to come. Happy news for staff and volunteers - and also our local population of jaguars!

Three separate jag sightings by staff and volunteers this phase - one flash, one eating a leatherback on the beach, and just the other day a mother and her two cubs walking down the trail less than a mile from base!

The spectacular migratory birds are still here for another month or two in huge numbers and the new sightings of all things wild and wonderful are still being racked up by the day!

Sounds too good to be true? Check these out...(click the photos for a better view, then click the link at the bottom to get involved! 152 fans on facebook can't be wrong!)
