I am really excited and anxious to discover what lies ahead for the Shell Shock team and I in Costa Rica. I think that this trip will have in store for us great and new experiences that will become memories that will hopefully never leave us. Sea turtle conservation is such an important issue and one that unfortunately very few are aware of. I hope to take what I learn from this trip to do further good and service outside from our trip to Costa Rica. I intend to take full advantage of this trip and not shy away from new friends and adventure.

Although we will be working with other things than specifically sea turtle conservation, I am particularly looking forward to seeing the baby turtles! After packing and unpacking and repacking for the past couple of days I can honestly say that I have not been more eager about leaving the country. Costa Rica, here I come!
