Justin arrives on the island

Hello everyone – a special first report from Justin Gregg. I’ve just arrived here on Bimini following a harrowing but exciting seaplane trip – my first! I’ll be here for one month learning all I can about the research being conducted in Bimini by Kathy and Kelly for DCP. Bimini is great so far – very hot and very relaxed; a big change from where I live in the bustling city of Dublin over in Ireland. It took me all of 10 minutes to receive my first sunburn. There is a lot to learn in the coming weeks, and I will get to experience my first swim with wild dolphins! I’ve been working on my snorkeling skills – Kathy and Kelly make it look easy out there in the water with the MVA surrounded by dolphins, but it is a lot harder than it looks. If I can get through my first research excursion without drowning myself, I’ll consider it a victory! In the mean time, I’m going to learn how to process all the data that are collected, as well as get to know the island. Lots to be done! Talk to you again soon – wish me luck!
