As our trip comes to a close, our class takes their time to appreciate the reefs and all we’ve learned. With our students taking their final snorkeling and diving trips, taking in the beautiful scenery, we’ve also been studying for our final exams. We’ve learned a lot of information in a short amount of time. From learning about dozens of species names, including fish, inverts, and even algae’s. We’ve collected many species in our wet lab, which all have studied vigorously. Living with all these new people has been a pleasure each day; we have all bonded on a level higher than we would have back in the states. Each day here, I’ve been thankful to have an opportunity to study at Discovery Bay, and have appreciated everyone’s company.
