This last week I went with 25 of my students on a snorkeling trip. The children who went are part of the wildlife club at school. Occasionally, they are given the opportunity to visit Turtle Watch, which is a local not for profit that protects sea turtles and teaches sustainable fishing practices to local fishermen. They are very well respected in the community for their work with wildlife conservation. Last month Sir David Attenborough was here filming a new BBC documentary with them on African wildlife. So, last Thursday, we took trip out to the reef so the children could see the fish and learn about importance of safe fishing and coral reef protection. The children were beyond excited and I spent most of my time in the water helping stay afloat since none of them can swim. It was a very beautiful and rewarding day for all of us.
