The new volunteers have settled in by now and the original ones are getting busy with their research surveys.  We have been lucky enough to go on some ‘fun dives’ too and have our first ‘turtle dive’ tomorrow.

We all had an amazing time at Creole Day in this last week, which involves us visiting the Presidents Village Orphanage, to play games, do arts and crafts and go swimming/snorkelling.  The children had so much fun and the smiles on their faces will be an image that will stay with us for a long time! Next week is our main fundraiser for the orphanage so if you haven’t already dug deep and donated then the link is www.justgiving.com/capTcharitychallenge.

Some of us rented cars this weekend which was a great opportunity to see more of Mahe, some of the driving skills were a little scary at times but we all made it back to base in one piece!  We had a presentation from the Save Our Seas charity, they do incredible conservation and research work worldwide.
