Belated update from UNBSJ in Bimini

BIM11_UNBbeachCleanupSorry for the delay in posting this field report. The UNBSJ field course wrapped up earlier this month and it was a huge success! The students were a great group and it was great having Dr. Turnbull and Jenn on-island once again. Unfortunately, the final day on the boat was rough and kept us out of prime dolphin areas. We tried our best to will the bottlenose dolphins to cross our paths, but it didn’t happen. On Monday, we wrapped up the course with discussion about ‘The Cove’ and eco-tourism before heading to Radio Beach for an intense beach clean-up. Supplies for the clean-up were sponsored by DCP Conservation Member Elisheva Kaplan. A big thank you to Elisheva and the UNB team who worked that beach, leaving nothing behind! Here you can see the evidence of their hard work, with the Bimini blue water as a backdrop – not bad!

It was great having all of you in Bimini – thanks for your hard work and enthusiasm UNBSJ! Can’t wait for next year’s group!

Until next time,
