Top volunteer....

Hi Jacquie,
Had a really fantastic time, thanks so much for the luxury accomodation! I found the turtles so impressive and looking at the whys and whereabouts of the tracks certainly brought out the detective in me! I got to tag two of them, one I named after my friend who is actually obsessed with tortoises. She feels very honoured to have a fellow 'Katharina' swimming around in Cabo Verde!
