Volunteers wanted! Stand up and be counted

Posted: December 17, 2013 by Central America Overland Expeditions in Expedition/Travel

Dear Family, Friends and Compatriots,
Our friends at San Pancho Turtles need your help. Trust me as there is no better way to spend your time volunteering in 2014 with this amazing organization to save the sea turtles. Below is a letter I received from the director Frank Smith. Please read it, volunteer and or donate if you can. And please feel free to contact me directly if you have any comments, concerns or questions with regards to volunteering. This is a great opportunity and a life changing experience.

Bernard Barbour,



Hola staff members ~
As you may have read in my newsletters, we’ve’ve had a serious problem enlisting volunteers. After the twin towers were dropped, and Wall Street tanked the world’s economy, we’ve’ve not been able to enlist sufficient numbers of volunteers. I believe that today many people, young or old do not have the discretionary income that would comfortably allow them to join us.

Although due to personal problems most of last season’s former volunteers were not able join us as planned. What ever the case, we need your help this coming season more than ever. We can’t go through another season exhausted and without help.

If we receive your dates we can then fill in the vacant slots around you by arranging the schedules of new volunteers. This is why it is very important that we receive your confirmation as soon as possible. We also enjoy the companionship of former volunteers.

Best Regards,
Frank D. Smith
