In the last few weeks our colleague Paul Viegelmann, based here in Cebu with me, has been calling members to check up on their status, remind them to send us news and use our mobile app. Thank you for taking Paul’s call and being friendly and receptive to our check-ups. These are still quite trying times for everyone and it is nice to find awe in the little things like exotic birds returning to our back yards as evidenced by one such report from a member in India (included herein).
As we navigate the long road back to normalcy I hope you all find inspiration in the way nature is thriving amidst the human downtime.
In network news today we are very happy to announce new members representing United States (Gulf Coast), and Slovakia. We also have member project movements related to: Malaysia, Ghana – Denmark, Finland – Russia, Italy – Iraq, Italy – Tanzania, and India – Nigeria

The Cross Ocean mobile app provides an easy way to lookup and contact members.

Humanity is going through unprecedented times and the news along with negativity is impacting our lives, in this situation we can still find positivity. Prarthana Shinde shared an uplifting story and photo on a phone call with Cross Ocean last week.
“In my yard there is a large tree where we usually only see normal birds like crows and sparrows, but in this lockdown we are now experiencing new species.
