Species Reports

Only two days until we head out!

Besides the readings for the class, students have been hard at work on species reports and presentations. We’ve been hearing about all sorts of things including:


The gopher tortoise (by Ashli Wilson), and the:


Scrub Jay (by Lacie Carter).

The students become our resident experts on these species and might be called on in the middle of our travels in the Keys and Everglades to remind us about the fact of these creatures.

Other species have included cypress trees, manatees, Key deers, zebra longwings, horseshoe crabs, word stork and corals.
