"As we approached the beach, Neil (GVI staff) pointed out the tracks up the sandy beach towards the brush and our excitement rose. Charlotte and I quietly celebrated the possibility of the first sighting on this phase of a turtle nesting.

We stayed for over an hour until the turtle was finished laying her eggs and started to wiggle back and forth, diligently kicking up sand to bury her nest. Charlotte and I were ecstatic to have witnessed something most people would never get a chance to see. My only thought is how amazing the Seychelles and this experience continue to be each and every day."

"I just recently returned from Kenya and was very impressed with GVI. All of the programs are very dynamic and seem to be extremely effective. In particular, the program in the Taveta region is spectacular and the people are amazing! I will be making ongoing donations to this program to help the communities, and purchase needed supplies for the products they are making, such as jam pots, sugar, beads, kangas, etc. My hope is that in a couple of years I can come back to this region and see what progress has been made."
