IMG_0288Our trips are always too short. What we need to do is plant ourselves in Galapagos for a good 3 months at a time. We could then make some real progress. When funding comes through we will do just that

We built a fence for Bruno Moreira Garcia, A sweet gent of a dog. He had been held by a very short rope for 8 years…now he walks and runs in his yard. He is free, but not free to roam the beaches in search of iguanas.

I contacted The Red Mangrove and talked to a woman by the name of Naomi West. I told her about GPS and she was sold. She pitched our organization to the owner Hernan Rodas and he too, was sold…he gave us our stay! A huge relief on our pocketbooks.

Their staff was so so helpful. Fernanda helped us locate the perfect location for our bat house.
More to come later this week!
