Greetings from beautiful Barra de Potosi!
To commemorate our amazing season of Leatherback nests (21 as of this post), we decided to decorate a trash barrel to help keep trash out of their environment.
We installed the can in front of the Kindergarten in Barra de Potosi. The Kinder is located at the main intersection in the village, where a barrel can certainly be used.
We recently performed a (socially distanced, masked) puppet show here for the children in Barra and noticed the need for a place for folks to put their trash at this busy intersection.
An idea was sparked, and thank you to our artist and camp volunteer Ruben Ramirez, the can was decorated beautifully with a Leatherback! and our our logo too!
When the barrel was installed, a quick pickup of the immediate are got it started…
So, as you can see, we take care of our turtle friends, but are also committed to community outreach. An educational puppet show for the children lead to us installing this can.
We feel very fortunate to be able to do these things thanks to your support! Your continued support keeps us going!
