The first turtle of 2009
The first tracks seen by members of SOS were in Maio on the 17th June but some tracks were seen earlier in Boa Vista. Here in Sal the first tracks were seen on the night of the 18th June on 'Black Sand Beach' (Zone N). It was a false crawl with no nest. Since then we have had another three tracks but still no nest. Compared to last year this is a bit of a slow start.
So unfortunately, the sweepstake was not won as nobody guessed the right day AND the right beach. Juan was the closest with his guess of the 17th on Zone N as was Jagdeep (18th Zone J).
Thanks a lot if you participate - you helped us to raise CVE 4500 (€45).
The next sweepstake will be about the first nest to hatch which will be mid to end of August.
