Day 6 BVI 2016

Getting out of bed this morning, a horrifying thought occurred to me. This was actually the last day of being in the BVIs. Wow! This trip went by unbelievably fast! I eventually had to stop thinking and immediately get to work since our cabin was making breakfast. Breakfast went very well since Doc brought massive donuts to commemorate our...

Day 5 BVI 2016

Although I slept through my alarm today, I was extremely fortunate to have my cabin mates come and wake me up. With only ten minutes I threw on my clothes and rushed over to the designated breakfast cabin. After eating, I went back to my cabin, Jasmine, to grab my gear and head out for the last day of...

Day 4 BVI 2016

Waking up this morning, I was filled with excitement over the fact that I was going to dive again today. I drank my morning cup of tea, ate breakfast at the Plum cabin, and rushed down to the taxi where Glenn, our driver, awaited. Our first dive took place at Bronco Billy. This dive site is called Bronco Billy...

Day 3 BVI 2016

Today was the first morning that another cabin had to make breakfast for us. While it wasn't as good as the previous two breakfasts, the cereal I had was very satisfactory. After applying an enormous amount of sunscreen, we went to meet Dr. Shannon, who is a turtle conservationist. She told us about the history of turtles in the...

Both of our dives today were dedicated to working on our project. Our project is determining if a greater diversity in coral, specifically elkhorn, staghorn, and brain,...

Day 1 BVI 2016

At 6:30 AM sharp my cabin of 5 marine bio 2 guys wake up. The alarm wasn't what woke up us. It was the roosters outside the Jasmine cabin. The roosters loud and piercing sound probably echoed throughout the entire island of Virgin Gorda, but is acted for me as a pleasant reminder that this place was far different...

Day 6

It is amazing that today was the very last day, this trip went by so fast. We started off today with eating some delicious and gigantic chocolate donuts. We then did a beach cleanup, which involved us picking up pieces of a catamaran that crashed a few months ago. It was very difficult to get to this spot. We...

Day 5

Today we spent a lot of time working on our projects. Our first dive involved us observing a very healthy reef, where we saw some very territorial schooling sergeant majors. We then went to a less healthier reef on our second dive, where we saw a lot of tiny yellow wrass. What we noticed in this project was that...
