Marcelo and I led a presentation on birds and how they can be a good indicator of contamination as they are migratory animals. We will be going to Isla de Corazon to see many birds, mangroves, as well as a successful effort at conservation. The students will be giving presentations on the different birds we will see there such as pelicans, cormorants, frigate birds, etc.
Today we had a fun day of building sand castles on the beach. Heather and some of the other volunteers were the judges and gave different awards such as, “the most ecological”, the most architecturally sound”, etc. It was a beautiful day of fun in the sun and great to see their enthusiasm as they got down and dirty.
