After 54 days in the Big Turtle House, we are finally connected to the world via wireless internet. 54 long days since we started our lonely patrols on the beaches of Sal every night and every morning. The first turtle made us wait 12 long days before tantalising us with some tracks until, finally, on the 17th June the first turtle was tagged by Hattie. Since that time we have counted more than 300 turtle 'activities' (tracks, nests etc), tagged 37 turtles, left 23 nests where they are and moved 35. As of last night there were 3124 eggs incubating away in the hatchery.
