FinalDay-BVI-Kilpatrick

Ahh the final day... I'm gonna miss the BVI's, a place where even the customs officers are friendly.

After that we headed down to the marina to board the sea lion on our final excursion into the big ol'...

Today was our service day. We got up early in the morning and walked about a half mile to the wall we where supposed to paint. around 10 30 the temperature shot up to about 98 with 170% humidity.

The morning was a little rough, in an attempt to not be last cabin down everybody forgot their dive certification and dive kits, resulting in multiple trips up and down the hill.everybody made it down in time though. After a while the taxi...

Kilpatrick-6/27/12

In class we went over 4 different articles; group c, d , e, and f's From group C's article I learned that ecotourism is an extremely effective method of bettering knowledge and attitudes towards endangered species. I assumed that because they increased a particpants awareness of the issue it did not necessarily motivate them to fix it. From group D's article...

Kilpatrick- Bluehead fish- 6/26/12

BLUEHEAD Order - Perciformes Family - Labridae Genus - Thalassoma Species - bifasciatum The bluehead fish has the highest average abundance of all fish in the BVI. Therefore, it is likely that we will see a lot of these on our trip, also because the blue head often approaches divers and snorkelers. Sometimes seen in schools up to 1000 fishes, they feed upon plankton...
