Giving back (to Haiti) and leaving Jamaica

If I've figured out how to do the schedule blog postings correctly, this entry will appear while we are all sitting around the Montego Bay airport waiting for our flight back to New York. It's been a great trip and there'll be one final blog post from Prof. Peterson in a few days and we'll post the project abstracts so everyone can get an idea of the research projects that were undertaken here.

We all realize that we are fortunate to be able to travel and work here in Jamaica at the Discovery Bay Marine Laboratory and the tragedy of the relatively nearby Haitian earthquake has reminded us we have much to be thankful for. We are proud to say that the 2010 MAR 388 course (students and faculty) has made a contribution of $500 (US) [~ 42,000 Jamaican dollars] to the Discovery Bay Marine Laboratory's donation package that will be sent to Haiti to assist relief efforts.

Prof. Warren
