What a great job! I think this could qualify for the Wildlife Rescue and Rehab mission: http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/9974...

Thank you Maria!:) Yes, I helped with the release. I'm working as an environmental officer of El Nido Resorts in Palawan, Philippines. We're an eco-resort, and part of my job is to protect nests and release hatchlings found on our islands. :)
