The marine turtle season is here in the southern Pacific region, and Hacienda Barú National Wildlife Refuge, in collaboration with the Asociación de Amigos de la Naturaleza (ASANA), has begun the marine turtle rescue project on Barú and Guapil Beaches for the 22nd consecutive year.

Since 1990 when the project started, more than 150,000 baby turtles have been released into the sea. Most of these have been olive ridleys, but there have been a few hawksbills. Anyone interested in participating in the project is welcome to accompany the Hacienda Barú rangers on a turtle patrol. As the project is always short of supplies and funding, ASANA asks for a voluntary contribution of $15 per person to accompany the rangers for three hours.

On June 30, from 8-11 p.m. at the Roadhouse169, Nabil y los Duros will play some foot-stomping rock-n-roll. The band features bass player José Alfaro from Radio 99.5, singer and guitar player Nabil García and drummer Manrique Corrales, formerly of Chepe Blues.

Picture Frames Plus, located at the Dome Plaza local #7 in Uvita, will begin offering photography classes in July. Class size is limited to six students, so you will get plenty of individual attention. The first class is an introduction to the digital camera; the second is on composition and the third is introduction to nature and macrophotography. All classes are $35 and include hands-on, professional instruction. For more class information, email Picture Frames Plus at picturefp@yahoo.com or call 2743-8121.
