It’s been a really busy two months at our Sea Turtle Restoration and Woman Empowerment program in Nicaragua with the building of our third nursery in Las Penitas! We are well over our number of protected nests from last year. In the last two months we have relocated 18,351 eggs, released 7,912 Olive Ridleys and have plenty of hatchlings expected in the next 3-4 weeks! We have 100 nests -70 that will hatch in the next month, so please adopt a nest and let your family and friends know as well!  You will receive a Thank You, a Certificate of Adoption, a photo of your nest with the number of eggs, and once they hatch, photos as well as a video of the girls and women releasing them back to the sea. 
Fun Fact: The leatherback sea turtle helps control the number of jellyfish in the sea!
On October 19th and 20th, Fabien and the FCOLC team sponsored the two-day NJ Science Convention in Princeton, NJ where our curriculum developers shared sample lessons from our Ocean Discovery education packs. Teachers and supervisors enjoyed a hands-on interactive lesson, learned about aquanauts, saving sea turtles, and what it’s like living underwater for long periods of time in a marine habitat!

Participants enjoyed meeting Fabien and hearing him share his underwater experiences, many that are the basis for our educational packs for use with the Next Gen Science Standards.  For more information and to purchase the packs, visit our

Once again Fabien and the FCOLC team joined forces with the residents of Long Beach NY to celebrate International Coastal Cleanup ™ and help clean up the local beaches.

In partnership with volunteer organizations and individuals around the globe, the International Coastal Cleanup™(ICC) engages people to remove trash from the world’s beaches and waterways. The FCOLC did our part and were joined by other active organizations in the community: All Our Energy, Skudin Surf, and Stewards of the Seas.

Thanks to the local volunteers made up of individuals, families and students, over 190 people assembled along the beach and shoreline removing 187 pounds of debris, including 565 cigarette butts, 807 bottle caps, 458 straws, 364 food wrappers and 1,246 small plastic pieces! As in past years, the Long Beach Middle School Art students are working on creating an Ocean Debris Art piece from the trash that can be recycled.  We are looking forward to the “reveal” once the students have completed the project and are ready to unveil their sculpture!

Our SEE – LEARN – DO theme focuses on bringing about awareness of the importance of protecting our ocean as well as educating both the young and the old on marine conservation.  The next step is of course taking action to care for the ocean.  As witnessed by this clean up, the residents of Long Beach were empowered to keep their beaches clean and preserve our blue planet.
We thank you for your continued support of the FCOLC.  Your donations have enabled us to create the Ocean Discovery education packs, designed to inspire students to protect our ocean; to assemble a community that cares about the ocean ecosystem and clean the beaches and the shoreline; and to grow our protection of the sea turtle population while improving the lives of the women and girls in Nicaragua!

We thank you for all you do!
Fabien and The FCOLC Crew
