Thanks to all of you who responded to our survey on naming our very smart leatherback who has nested 8 different times at our nurseries in Nicaragua!
Our first place winner, Zarita means “Noble Lady", in Spanish a name well suited for this incredible Mama! In second place was Hermosa which means “Beautiful One” and in third place, Reina Madre which means “Queen Mother”.

Our team is watching to see when she may come back again as we are tracking her through her flipper tag. Our scientists on the ground tell us she may not come back for another year, but we will be on the look-out for her. 

While our current nesting season is coming to a close we still have 11 nests available for adoption. Help us care for these baby turtles and adopt in memory of a loved one, or surprise your friends and family for their birthday with a gift that gives back to nature.
Adopt a Nest Today!
Your dollars are helping our program thrive and grow—below are some photos of the women and youth who are doing a great job making sure our turtles are released safely. Our women’s team gave a presentation on how to care for sea turtles on International Woman’s Day and one of our young ocean stewards, Jennifer, is teaching other children about sea turtles. We love seeing our turtles bringing together the local community and growing that human-ocean connection!

Stay safe and healthy,
Fabien and the FCOLC Crew
