Review for ECOLOGY PROJECT INTERNATIONAL, Missoula, MT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

EPI connects students with scientists and the natural world, inspiring them and giving them the tools to take care of the earth. I have walked in the dark (no flashlights) alonga Carbbean beach monitoring leatherback sea turtles as they emerge from the water to lay their eggs... and I have seen the transformation in the young people I was with, as they took data... counting eggs, measuring the turtle, and learning about this animal and its threatened existence. EPI's experiences leave a profound impact. These students go home motivated to talk to others about not eating turtle eggs, and about preventing plastics and pesticides from polluting the ocean. And they go home with a better understanding of how science works, ready to learn more.

Role:  Board Member & monitored sea turtles, serve on BOD.
