We woke up early this morning to have breakfast while listening to
Norman give us our Earthwatch safety briefing. Twenty-two years ago
close to 3500 Mahoe trees were planted. Our adventure today was to
count the Mahoe trees on various plots. 3t, the lead scientist,
taught us how to recognize the trees we were supposed to flag and
count and quizzed us continuously until we got to the plots. It was
really difficult to know the difference at first, but I think we all
got the hang of it pretty quickly. We counted a mass total of 525
trees. What I found really interesting was
that most people take their
dog for a walk but we had a goat. A funny little fellow named after
an original Puerto Rican God named Yuyuki.
We're all watching you, your colleagues in Iceland. We look forward to your presentation when you come back. That's a lot to learn ... You'll return a fully-fledged scientist - to teach us about the environment.
Regards, Anna Heiða
