This year we have a very successful nesting season in Calis! By now there are 31 nests on the beach, which is the highest number since 1994!
Five new students arrived in the last two weeks and the group who came first will leave this weekend.
Nearly every student had the chance to see an adult turtle and every morning we take care of the nests and the hatchlings. When the hatching is finished we excavate the nests to check the number of empty shells, fertilized and unfertilized eggs and dead hatchlings.
In Yaniklar we stopped going on night shifts, it's too dark to see the hatchlings there.
We also went on some trips in our spare time, made Marillenknödel for our friends and went to the bazar.
