Out on the water
(1) Here is part of our class heading out from Phi Phi to conduct a comparison of reefs that are in good condition with those that have been damaged by human mismanagment. Left to right are: Ryan, Craig, Kim, Katie, Meridith, Kasey, Megan, Emily, Ashley, and Andrea. The others will join us shortly as they return from their sunrise snorkel with black-tip reef sharks. (2) Lindsey, Josh, and Cara showing missing digits after the shark snorkel. Grant was more careful. (3) Preparing to get wet are Josh, Lindsey, and Grant. (4) Sea kayaking through channels to the mangroves where the students saw and learned about mangroves and their conservation first-hand.
