In this picture are some of the international Rangers from overseas but also our great volunteers who live in Sal.
As anyone who has worked with us knows, it is a punishing schedule, working six nights a week for four months, walking up and down the beach for hours.
The resident volunteers who dedicate one or two nights a week to patrol alongside full time Rangers and then go to work the next day fill those gaps on our rota that mean we can patrol even more beaches and save even more turtles. Not only that, but they bring a fresh enthusiasm that enlivens some very tired people! Alongside the Rangers and the volunteers we rely on our great Capeverdean contingent who find employment with us, but more than that, fight the cause by spreading the word about their work amongst their countrymen.
To those who didn't make it on Sunday (the Rangers in camp, Antonio, Steve M, the Salter family, Peter and Linda, Isabel and Vaughn, Vickey) - don't worry we'll get you sooner or later!
