We'd like to apologise for the excavation yesterday as it didn't go according to plan. We had a large group from Turkcell, who kindly donate money towards our petrol bill each year, who came to the excavation. They arrived after the information speech was given by our volunteers, so were given another talk in English and Turkish by Project Leader Robin and Turkish speaking volunteer Errol. By this time, however, the original group had been waiting for some time in the heat on the beach for the second group to arrive. We are sorry to those of you who did not have an enjoyable excavation experience because of this.
We have another large group coming today, this time from the US Emabassy, and we've decided to make this a private event to avoid a repeat of yesterday with mis-timings. It is very unusual for us to take group bookings and we have only made these two special exceptions so far this season. Therefore there is no public excavation or hatchling release on tonight, but hopefully we'll be back on again as usual tomorrow.
Thanks and see you soon
MTCP Project Leader
