Through out the day, students have been in and out of the Hol Chan Marine Office where 2009 Turtle Expo has been launched by The Belize Sea Turtle Network. Information placards line the office, a live Hawksbill Turtle is in a water container and information abounds as children learn the life of a turtle. By understanding their way of live, children understand how and why it is important to protect these valuable and beautiful creatures. Their life cycle is also explained and the importance of nesting season and the protection of their eggs is highlighted. Teacher Moncho's class coming out of Hol Chan all smiles!
Turtle Man made an appearance!
The Expo will be available for viewing at Hol Chan until Friday. For observation only!
