Generous donation from St Ives Sub-Aqua Club

Andy Thomas from St Ives SAC (British dive club) visited the hatchery and handed us a cheque for £850. The money was raised by holding a ball in the summer. Andy & Elise, who have an apartment on Boa Vista, also adopted a baby turtle during their stay. That amount of money makes a huge difference to our project, so thanks a lot to everyone at the club, hope you have a great dive season.
