April 2009: Preparations

The preparation begins. Emails begin to flow from Allison at Earthwatch Institute, forms are to be filled in and responsibilities acknowledged. I notice the edge to the Earthwatch approach – great you have been awarded a fellowship, now let’s get to work! I really like this approach and appreciate the “let’s get it moving” philosophy. Through the comprehensive emails and posted briefings I learn more about the important work that I will be expected to support. 
I write a news release about Earthwatch and the upcoming expedition and send it to local media organizations. Once I return home, I will be providing a briefing (TV or news) to explain what we achieved on the expedition.
