ECOLOGY PROJECT INTERNATIONAL Reviews
I am a high school teacher and I chaperone groups of students on EPI's wonderful programs annually. I have taken trips to Costa Rica where we worked hands on with the endangered Leatherback Sea Turtles. We patrolled the nesting beaches at night and when a Leatherback came up to nest, we would collect various data and also ensure her nest was located in a good location. During the day, we hiked and witnessed first hand our lessons of biology, ecology and conservation. On a trip to Baja, we witnessed daily Blue and Bryde's whales. The students collaborated with the scientists to locate a whale and then successfully obtain a biopsy of the blubber and skin. All students have become super charged on these trips to persue a degree and a career in the science field. Also, many have come home to make drastic changes within their own lives and community. It is been really rewarding as a teacher to witness this change in a student. It is an impact only trips like the ones EPI offers can initiate.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
Seeing the change in the students that have gone with me and seeing some incredible species of wildlife!
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
super friendly, knowledgable and just GREAT people.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Change the way the human race treats the Earth.
