The famous SOS Turtle Predication Sweepstake

How to play:

a) Take a look at the map of Sal and decide which beach you think the first turtle track will be seen by SOS Tartarugas.  Remember the letter.  (Click map to enlarge)
b) Decide which day you think it will be seen.  Remember the date.  (Hint: Unlikely to be before June 1st and if it is after June 21st there are going to be some very bored SOS Rangers by then!)
c) Email or post here your beach letter and date.
d) Donate €2 to the cause
e) Collect your prize which consists of a brand new SOS cotton bag and the honour of adopting the very first nest in the hatchery in 2011.

Good luck!

PS You have to get the date and beach correct to win and judge's decision is final!
