at Asupmatoma, eating a dinner of fish soup and rice after the clusterfuck of releasing the baby turtles, which were disoriented and confused by being held captive until all the visitors had pawed and photographed them to their hearts' content. many of them were tired already, and wandering back and forth along the beach instead of heading directly towards the water. my cynical take is that this is all an exercise in futility; the sea turtles will become extinct anyway, and these people will not experience the pleasure of eating them.

there was a baby rabbit, earlier today, hiding in plain sight next to a granite rock along the trail to the beach. another thing that wouldn't otherwise have survived.
