lucastmeers A Strawberry Poison Dart Frog. Individuals at higher elevations tend to have blue legs, but along the coast they have less blue (if at all) and more black spots. #tortuguero #costarica 5d

lucastmeers On our way back from our track survey, we found some exposed lizard eggs in the middle of the path. We relocated them to an area nearby (without rotating them, of course). #lizard #eggs #tortuguero #costarica 6d

lucastmeers A cool spider trying to make itself look bigger in the national park this morning. Behind him is a vanilla orchid vine. I picked a few beans to try and cure them to make vanilla extract. We'll see how it goes. I also have a new entry in my blog lucastmeers.wordpress.com #spider #tortuguero #costarica 1w

lucastmeers Sand Dollars on our black sand beach. There are a lot of them, but they are small - about the size of a quarter. #costarica #tortuguero #sanddollar 2w

lucastmeers This is a photo I took for the Sea Turtle Conservancy of a nest relocation two nights ago. A nest was poached, but the local police caught the man. I put the full story on my blog at lucastmeers.wordpress.com #costarica #tortuguero #seaturtle 2w

lucastmeers Yesterday we released an endangered Green Turtle (left), and today we were lucky enough to release a critically endangered Hawksbill Turtle (right). These releases were for #TourDeTurtles, which tracks each turtle's movements to helps raise awareness to conservation efforts and the threats to their survival. Tonight, we are celebrating 4th or July in Costa Rica. A little interesting since there are only about 8 Americans. #tortuguero #costarica #seaturtle #turtle #4thofJuly www.tourdeturtles.org 3w

lucastmeers Today we released a Green Turtle with a transmitter for #TourDeTurtles! It is a sea turtle 'race' to raise awareness for sea turtle conservation and threats to their survival. The official race begins August 1, and you can get more details at www.tourdeturtles.org. #costarica #tortuguero #seaturtle 3w

lucastmeers The school has a break from classes and the research assistants are going in each day teaching a condensed lesson on geography, animals and a culture from each continent. The kids made passports and will receive a stamp when they attend each lesson and complete the activity. Sadly, they were under the impression we were traveling to each continent, and their passports would suffice at the actual airport. This is a picture from when Nerine and I taught about #Australia and had them make Aboriginal dot paintings. #costarica #tortuguero 3w
