Review for Ecology Project International, Missoula, MT, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

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.

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...
