Rain in Sal
Rain is destroying the beaches and the town at the moment. The entire beach profile has changed and we suspect that many nests will have been washed into the sea. A particular area of concern is Serra Negra where the beach is narrow and a lot of rain will flow directly from the mountain, causing deep gullies and rifts. Because of the risk of lightning strikes, for the first time, our Rangers were unable to patrol last night but we did manage to get to the hatcheries and find some crazy baby turtles who chose the stormy night to make an appearance!
