Service learning in the Galapagos

I am very excited about the sea turtle monitoring project because it is a wonderful way for people to help the national park with data collection and to increase awareness about sea turtle nesting behavior and life cycle. Both of the nighttime monitoring groups were lucky enough to see a sea turtle, but only my group was able to see one nesting. I loved being able to see the whole process and getting the opportunity to collect information about the turtle for the national park. Growing up in Florida I have always been fascinated by sea turtle and getting the chance to have this experience has just made my love that much deeper.
