Agua y Tierra Hero Award Nomination

Foundation Aqua y Tierra, an organization dedicated to sea turtle conservation and community projects, and  sustainability, has been nominated for the Heroes Award.

The award is given out annually by  Panama's National TV Channel, Channel 2 (TVN).

We visited Jacinto Rodriguez, president of the nonprofit organization, to help build the turtle hatchery in Mata Oscura. Almost a hundred people including students, locals community members and conservation professionals, came to help out. In response to the recent nomination, Jacinto expressed his gratitude, the award would offer a boost to the foundation, and hope for the conservation of sea turtles.
