stories

Alex T – Troop 934, Port Deposit, MD

"During our course, we got to do several service projects, starting the first full day at Outward Bound Base Camp. That morning, two of the Destinations staying at Base Camp worked together to help dig channels in the trails to keep them from being eroded by rain. The next day, we headed out to Talamanca where we stayed with a local family during the week we spent painting the school. It was really cool being able to interact with the family, and also to be able to make the school look nice for when the kids went back. After our time in Talamanca, we traveled to San San in Panama to help with the conservation efforts there. We mostly did sea turtle- related work, such as nest exhumations (digging up nests in the hatchery that had hatched, and finding the undeveloped or unhatched eggs, and figuring out what caused them to die- fungus, bacteria, crabs/insects, etc.), releasing the babies, and night patrols (walking along the beach looking for mother turtles). On one night patrol we found a Leatherback laying her eggs. The biologist who was with us on the patrol tagged her and caught the eggs so we could take them back to the hatchery to keep them safe from predators or poachers. Two of the girls got to help measure the turtle, and then we watched her cover the nest and make it safely back to the ocean. It was amazing to see the turtle so close up! However, the best thing I think I got to do was help measure the baby turtles before we released them. While we were in Panama, we also planted 150 trees, and saw a sloth and several iguanas. Back at Base, we got to spend a day white water rafting, which was totally awesome, and a day zip-lining and visiting a market, which was also fun. I learned a lot about teamwork, but also about being independent while on course, and had a lot of fun!"
