VOLUNTEERING IN PARADISE

Hey guys it is 9:00 a.m. which means it is time to go down to the turtle sanctuary, and go, and feed, and clean at the Turtles it’s like the best part of the day hello these guys are almost ready for leasing look at it alright guys this morning’s task is to collect rubbish off the beach, and clean it up, and also go, and find some seaweed. Because the turtles like to eat it see we have to look out for all righty guys we’re gonna feed the totals you see where you’ve got me sound all they wanted since that was close careful just going for a little cheeky beach walk while I wait for our lunch to be ready we decided to come, and have lunch at this cafe today I’ve just come down to have a little stroll along the beach, and I thought I’d show you guys a little bit more about this sea turtle project now if you were with us somewhere in Costa Rica you would have seen that we spent a week at a sea turtle conservation where there we had to go, and collect eggs put it in a hatchery, and then once eggs hatched we then set them all free, and let them all like the little babies go into the ocean we’re here at the valley project it’s a little bit different in Costa Rica they had a huge problem with poachers which meant that a lot of the eggs didn’t even have a chance to hatch, and get into the water. Because the poachers would come, and take the eggs before they even had we here at Bali all the eggs are hatching, and going into the water. But they’re noticing that a lot of the babies are dying in the water they don’t have a high survival rate one of the guys working here we’re telling me that for the first two, and a half months baby sea turtles are blind, and can’t even see.

So what the barley conservation wants to do is to collect the turtles, and then let them have a chance to grow up a bit. So they wait a year, and then once the turtles are big enough healthy enough they then release them into the ocean, and hopefully they have more of a chance of growing to adulthood, and coming back to the beaches, and laying more eggs the future turtles guys for lunch we ordered banana crepes, and we literally just got served party on a plate it looks amazing whose birthday is that it looks like someone has put like a party cracker on the house all righty, I’ll often earring toss is to come down, and instead of looking for seaweed we’re now looking for crabs there’s a little bit of a desert of the turtles pinch yeah.
