CLOSE SHAVES AND HARD WORK IN THE OSA PENINSULA

Corcovado
On 7th July whilst camped with Guaymi, a large tree Suddenly snapped at its base, possibly due to termites and crashed down amongst our tents. Miraculously no one was hurt.

In forest we found an extraordinary twelve square feet face of an Indian in headdress carved into a cliff. It is quite a work of art and unlike any seen in this area.The origin is a mystery.

Expedition has now moved to Carate and is camped in a grove of tall palms, 100 meters from the Pacific. Lana Wedmore and her team from Luna Lodge had already set up dining and cooking shelters for us. Biologist Phoebe Edge of the turtle project has briefed the team who are now refurbishing the hatchery.

On arrival we were entertained by Markus and Gabriela Wehrmeister at the Wild Life Refuge Lodge and our transport to Carate was kindly provided by The Corcovado National Park Director Etilma Morales.

Now our clinics and wildlife studies are in full swing and work has started on the timber footbridge at the access to the park. The animal puppets taken to encourage wildlife conservation are proving very popular with the children.

Weather continuous hot and very humid. Earth tremor shook the camp at 05:45 on 10 July.
