The myths surprised the volunteer a lot as she never heard about these before.

Organization: Experiment Germany                                  Duration: September 2014 to May  2015

I was born on 30/08/2014 in India. Well, actually I came to India by plane that day – but as there are many differences between the German and the Indian culture the first weeks felt indeed like growing up again. To give you a little insight, I will share one day of my Indian life – of course experienced through my “German classes”.

Little artists around Kundapur

In the last two weeks the Sea Turtle Conservation Team conducted drawing competitions in three different schools (Kanchogodu, Maravanthe, Kodikanyana) with turtle related topics. Students from 5th to 7th Standard took part and created very nice drawings. Every standard got its own topic with rising levels of difficulty to higher standards. The students from the 5th Std were asked to draw a single sea turtle,  the 6th Std. to draw the foodchain of the sea sea turtle and finally the threats to sea turtles was the topic for the 7th Std.
