Ellie’s Volunteering with Sail Carribean

This summer I went to camp at Sail Caribbean in the British Virgin Islands. I was lucky enough to see, touch, and tag green turtles multiple times. Tagging turtles keeps track of their population and their migrations. After a hurricane in the BVI they were worried the population would decrease, but the tags from before the storm showed that thankfully the storm did not have a huge effect on the population. I also cleaned 3 beaches, where we picked up trash and plastic. We also hosted an event with another organization that brought together a local community with water sports and beach games. My boat organized and worked with kids there.
