We had a great time in Cao Verde and intend to go back, maybe different island/time of year? We walked along the beach from our hotel to find the hatcherry (40 mins). it was quite busy around the beds, so we had a good look at the available literature- all very interesting. when the beds had quitened down we managed to get nearer and even managed to handle an egg, wonderful experience for our daughter. so much so, we bought 2 t-shirts and 3 gift donations for our daughter and her cousins. for this we got a badly written certificate and the promise of news/photos being e-mailed to the 3 girls.
We are all still waiting, i didn't realise the turtles took this long to hatch and i am also aware that not all eggs hatch, but 12 months and not a single word.This strikes us a long time to wait.
Just be aware before parting with money ($100) that promises are not always fulfilled. my daughter has tried to contact them direct- ignored.
not the best way to help with conservation, we shall not be lucky next time.
