This is Mateo, Tammy and I adopted this baby sea turtle hatchling down in San Pancho, Mexico that is being released tonight. We got to name him after we made a small donation to this wonderful facility called Grupo Ecológico de la Costa Verde http://project-tortuga.org/contribute.html. Our Daughter Kristen is currently there now on a two  month volunteer assignment ( http://foreigncoin.tumblr.com/ ). I volunteered some time there last year while on expedition throughout Mexico and Central America.  This is a cause near and dear to us. This year 2013 has been fraught with difficulties in raising funds and many unforeseen expenses from last season, including  damage from hurricane waves, termites within the box nursery and a vehicle fire and engine replacement all took it’s toll on what donated funds were available.  The damage has been repaired, but they need your help now.  If you would like to help,  Please click on the link above and make a donation, any amount would be greatly appreciated. Donations can be made by Paypal or snail mail.
Thank You
