My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Ecology Project International, Missoula, MT, USA
I went on the EPI trip to Costa Rica to help save and preserve the Leatherback sea turtle population. It was truely an experience of a life time. To be able to touch the gentle, prehistoric, giant turtles was crazy! With that in mind this trip was no vacation. Everyone worked hard walking for 4 or more hours during the night paroling the beaches. I would say that if anyone is going to go on this trip they should be a person who loves animals and wants to help them. If this description doesn't fit you, I don't think you will fully enjoy the experience. I loved this trip so much that I have signed up for another trip this summer in Yellow Stone National Park. I fully look forward to the people I'll meet and the animals I'll see.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
I get to work with animals and feel like I am making a difference. I want to eventually be a big cat veterinary researcher and going on these trips have help me realize that this is the career that I really do want to persue.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
we really nice. They were helpful and actually listened to what I had to say. They did not make me feel like I was just some annoying teenager on a trip. Plus they knew their stuff and I actually learned things! :)
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
save the animals species of the world for the next generation to enjoy.
Ways to make it better...
I loved everything nothing should be changed
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
One thing I'd also say is that...
this program is fabulous and I hope everyone else has as great of an experience as me!
