The trip was a success! We worked with scientists from the Center for Marine Research (University of Havana), and learned about and helped with coral reef monitoring. We learned basic methodologies used for monitoring the health of the reefs. We also helped out at an organic farm that specializes in medicinal plants like aloe and turmeric. In addition, myself and two other students presented to a marine conservation group in a small community called Cocodrilo. We spoke about environmental issues and tourism in Tampa Bay, and then their group presented to us.

My project will seek to raise pollinator awareness through education. I will make t-shirts and posters that encourage helping pollinators through certain actions. We will encourage planting of milkweed and other helpful plants. We will ask others to commit to boycott pesticides and non-organic planting.

Volunteer manpower, information, or any other form of assistance useful in the effective implementation of wildlife conservancy programs. Through the support of civil society we hope to put checks and balances on already existing wildlife management authorities. We intend to see that executive, judiciary and legislature fully carry out their mandate and enforce the newly enacted wildlife protection laws. We also intend to rally support for wildlife friendly legislation and demand the swift prosecution of poachers. Any conservancy groups or friends of animals that want to contact us or support us can do so via sending an email to parklandsprotect@gmail.com for more information.
