Description
ViVAZUL El Salvador cared for this turtle nest, sponsored with proceeds earned from recycling waste gathered at school by students - old toothbrushes, juice bags, ziploc bags, used printer cartridges, broken cell phones and cameras. The children enjoyed knowing that they could help sea turtles by keeping these items out of the garbage with Terracycle.org. Although the main season for sea turtles is during El Salvador's "winter" in July- November, this nest was saved from an olive ridley mom on January 14th. Coincidentally, the nest has 72 eggs. Since Rooftop School was founded in 1972, this sea turtle nest was a great way to celebrate the school's 40th Birthday
