          Wednesday morning our dives were delayed due to weather and a very cool lesson on turtles. A turtle nest hatched on the beach Tuesday night and we all assisted in sorting and counting the broken shells. We determined that 118 turtles successfully hatched and headed toward the ocean the night before. The hatched eggs were a beautiful sight and we look forward to seeing it again!

         This week 4 volunteers travelled to Punta Allen with staff member Cynthia to volunteer in the community. Luke, Tate, Will and Alex worked hard the entire day cleaning up the new recycling centre and providing and promoting english lessons to the locals. Another group of volunteers will visit Punta Allen next week to continue this type of work.

        This week all volunteers have completed their dive training and have begun their fish and coral spot dives. The juvenile crew has begun practice monitoring! This week we celebrated Josh's 20th birthday with cake, chocolate and peanut butter cookies! We also celebrated the arrival of the new staff member, Virgina! Sadly this is Martin and Sarah's last week at Pez Maya. They will be greatly missed and we wish them luck in the future.
