Because they are cute and endangered

Writing this post in advance because once Tim and I arrive in San Jose on Wednesday morning we have less than 24 hours there before we take a bus and boat to our next destination - La Tortuga Feliz - www.latortugafeliz.com - where we will stay for 7 nights at the mouth of the Rio Pacuare on the Caribbean coast just north of Puerto Limón. We are volunteering turtle conservationists!
The organization's mission is to protect the sea turtles and their eggs that are at risk because of poachers in the area. We do night patrols each night in 4 hours shifts. No electricity means we will not be able to call or email while we are there...so we thought it best to give you the heads up!
