After about six weeks on South Caicos, we finally made it to our mid-semester break in North Caicos, Middle Caicos, and Providenciales! One of my favorite places we visited was Mudjin Harbor, Middle Caicos. After camping with 1,000,000 mosquitoes, this hike, swim, and view made it all worth it.
Of course, we focus on marine science, ecosystems, and animals, but we have the honor of hanging out with these cute puppies every day. Three dogs live with us (Fluffy, Louie, and Stanley), but if you just walk out the front door, you’ll bump into many more.
Just a few weeks ago, two different dogs had puppies! They’re just big enough to be held now. Will I take one home? Definitely maybe.
If you’re interested in adopting a dog, I’d be happy to act as a carrier for you! Check out http://www.potcakeplace.com/ for more information about a very popular adoption agency that works with all of the islands.
Our Friends with Flippers
Of course, we extend our animal encounters to shore lines and deep seas. Here are a few pictures of different animals we’ve recently come across. These pictures were all taken by students and interns on the program within the past few weeks.
