A Desperate Sound

The sound was that of a baby's cry, desperate and hungry. The dark sands of the Costa Rican beach were littered with branches and other debris. The storm that had just passed had made the sky dark. As Dirk ran across the rocks, his bare feet spread against the sharp stones. He quickly searched in between the pebbles and stones, under the rubbish and fallen trees. Out in the distance, Dirk could see the motionless creature stuck between the hard rocks, but was there time?

A Life To Love

Dirk and Lori Morgan, originally from Ohio, are nature lovers. For three generations, the Morgans have provided stunning experiences in breathtaking places all over the world. From the eastern rivers of the Amazon to the vast Canadian wilderness, this family has one love: the need to share their passion for the outdoors with other people. Occasionally, there's more to the outdoors than fun and sunshine.

Conserving The Land

All of the destinations that Dirk explores are ecological. The locales are protected by the visitors by protecting the natural beauty and conserving the environment. Costa Rica is one of the most popular places related to ecotourism. Keeping that in mind, the couple created a visitor lodge on the Osa Peninsula, which is near the eastern town of Puerto Jimenez. Lots of couples are attracted to the location. One of those couples heard a strange noise on one of their strolls along the shoreline.

Everyone heard the winds throughout the night, but the lodge was strong and kept them dry and safe from the chaotic storm. Tea and blankets were used to keep them warm enough to appreciate Mother Nature through the glass screen, while keeping them safe from her destruction. Unfortunately, not everyone was so lucky. A tired and wet ball of hair was left motionless on the shore. The young creature had endured a long night.

A Lone Creature

No warmth, shelter, food, or protection. The unusual creature was completely vulnerable to the elements and other animals without the protection of its mother. Dirk didn't hesitate. “I took off,” he said. He put one foot in front of the other as he ran in an attempt to find the creature before something else reached it first. Young animals that are exposed are vulnerable, even if their parent is nearby. Being alone, the animal's fate was unknown.
