Hugh Paxton’s Blog wants your money! Or more precisely, my buddy, Colum (one of this blog’s more negligent columnists), wants your money.
I’ve known Colum for many years and for as many of the years that I have known him he has been active in sea turtle conservation in Guatemala. It’s tough turf. If a volcano isn’t erupting, there’s drug gang warfare action, or wildlife poaching, or political assassinations or a hurricane. But Guatemala’s a great country despite its colourful way of life and its habit of lurching from catastrophe to catastrophe. It has a vibrant magic to it that once you’ve tasted you never forget. And the NGO, ARCAS, which Colum is directing, is a kick-arse operation. Their heads have been bloodied repeatedly but remain un-bowed.
Here’s the stuff he sent me.
Brothers, sisters, spare a dime! Or, if you are feeling rich, spare a hundred dollars. Money well spent!
Over to Colum!
