Afternoon turtleteers! Happy to announce that after a few quiet days we do indeed have an excavation today. Yipee! The excavation will take place on our 3rd bay on alagadi (to the left of the beach bar with your back to the sea). As usual it will take place at 4pm. Please head to Goatshed for 3.45 if you'd like to go down with us, failing that, keep an eye out for us in our red t-shirts on the beach. The nest we're excavating is a Green turtle nest, so fingers crossed for some hatchlings!! As of yet, we've no hatchling release tonight. Our North beaches have been super quiet the past two days. However, if we get some hatchlings from the excavation today, there's a good chance we will be able to then book people on for a release tonight. If this is the case, head back up to goatshed after the excavation to secure your place. Remember, it's first come first served! Much as we're having a quiet start to the week, we still welcome any visitors who would like some information, so don't be shy, pop in and see us! Alternatively, you can give us a ring on 05338798533. Now, a new addition to this week! Our west base, in Akdeniz,have been feeling left out due to the lack of visitors out there. So today they are welcoming visitors down for a hatchling release. To get to Akdeniz,head west out of Girne towards Guzelyurt and follow signs for Akdeniz. We will meet at the Carretta Bar (which is very well signposted) at the usual time of 8. Akdeniz is approximately an hours drive from Girne. To book on to this release, call us at the goatshed and we'll give you all the info you need. Have a lovely day turtle folk! Lots of love, Sara P.S. All of us at goatshed would like to take this opportunity to wish one of our previous volunteers, James Lowden a VERY happy 20th birthday today. Happy Birthday James, your beautiful singing voice is missed very much.
