More men needed!

Could be less than eight weeks before we see the first nesting turtles for this year and we are already getting reports of sightings at sea.

In the meantime we are finalising arrangements with this year's Rangers.  We almost have all the international volunteers we need - they will be arriving from the UK, Ireland, the USA, Portugal, Spain and Italy.   Noticeably, we have not been able to recruit any German speakers or sufficient Portuguese speakers.  We also need more men to balance out the team.
