Folboters Doing Good Around The World

We recently heard from John Peltier, a member of the Folbot family who was visiting Conception Island in the Bahamas. Conception Island is the island that Christopher Columbus discovered in 1492, and John tells us that Columbus’ “logs show that he walked these same beaches where my kodiak was beached.” As if that isn’t newsworthy enough, John shared a little bit about the work he was doing on his voyage.

Aside from enjoying the sunny skies and crystal clear water, John was taking photos for the Bahamas National Trust.

“It’s an uninhabited national park and they’re doing a publicity drive.  This was at the request of some folks who work for the trust and took me out on a trip to capture, tag, measure, and release endangered green sea turtles.”

Thanks for the photos and stories, John, and happy Folboting!
