Last week, we were happy to welcome Bertrand and Christophe, the 2nd winners of “Défi des foulées” organized by the Nature & Découverte Foundation.
After running for the good cause, Bertrand, manager of the toy department at Nature & Decouverte, had the chance of being the lucky winner of the draw among many other participating employees. He won a trip to Moorea for two people and spent a few days at the sea turtle care center with his husband, Christophe.
Thanks to the enthusiasm of over 15.300 participants, €30.000 were donated to our association. With this funding, we continued our nesting monitoring program on the atoll of Tetiaroa. We also improved the functioning of the sea turtle care center and we are now equipped with new nurseries and equipment, which helped to care for 35 baby turtles. Finally, we raised awareness of more than 350 kids through a series of workshops and events.
