I wrapped up a week of wildlife presentations at local schools at Sister Borgia Primary School today. I even got a special certificate of appreciation! This week I visited 14 classes and presented to over 350 students about how various animals arrived on St. Martin. The presentation covered a bunch of important topics, including seabird nesting, migration, overwater colonization by non-flying animals, evolution of unique new species on islands, and the impact of invasive species. Most importantly, all of this was illustrated using the animals that live right here on St. Martin.
Huge thanks to the folks who donated to the Sponsor a School Visit program, which covered the expenses of doing these presentations. Hopefully we can do more of this in the future!
