CURMA Turtle Bootcamp

A Turtle Bootcamp was organized by Ms. Tina Antonio in support of the starting of sea turtle “pawikan” season from October to February. It was held at the beachfront of Kahuna Resort, San Juan, La union, last Oct.1,2017.

The SIFCare CURMA volunteers were invited to share with the local community the invaluable role of this marine animal and how it should be protected especially now that they’re already endangered. Mr. Roly Inigo, a former poacher turned volunteer and Elorde Nonesa, a regular employee turned CURMA facilitator, fuelled up the interests of the participants by their shared experiences. At least 12 volunteers signed up to help patrol their nearest coast.
