Earth Day Experience

I hope all of you had a wonderful Earth Day last month! I know this is late, but I wanted to post about our Earth Day here in St. Thomas.  
Working for a program that cares for the environment is so rewarding.  One of the most rewarding aspects is our opportunity to serve, help make a difference and encourage a change.  This Earth Day Jake and I both had the opportunity to represent our employers and help with "The Ridge to Reef" clean up.  Some chose to walk the beach and road at Coki Point to pick up trash and help keep the land clean, and others volunteered to dive the reefs of Water Bay and pick up trash in the water.  Jake captained the dive shop's boat.  We took out a bunch of divers, I stayed on board and as people filled bags we met them with the boat where I emptied their bags, and looked for any kind of creature that may have been removed from it's home by accident. It was a fun experience and I am glad we had the opportunity to help make a difference, and enjoy a fun day focusing on our beautiful planet.

Saved a few of these little guys, put them back in their homes away from the trash.

Now this can go to the right place!
Get involved! Do what you can to make a difference.  Protect the environment to protect yourselves!
