In Costa Rica, we were able to experience an amazing trip to one of the most beautiful ecosystems in the world.
I could not believe that I had been selected by the Duttenhaver foundation to go to Costa Rica and do field research. Even though I was not too sure of what I would be doing, I could not contain my excitement!
Having returned home from Costa Rica about a week ago, I’m still having a difficult time trying to sit down and collect my thoughts.
This is something that I had dreamed of doing ever since I was little—that is, being somewhere new and being able to study the environment in order to help protect it.
We all have preconceived ideas of what the jungle is like. Some describe it as unforgiving. Others describe it as a home to some pretty gnarly-looking bugs.
