At 6:30pm we went to the barbeque and had our final meal at Kembly’s place.

Today we spent the day snorkeling and catching rays where Pablo, Nayan, Robert and others caught rays. We also cleaned the beach and collected data based on what we found. Later, we learned about the daily flight patterns of local yellow naped parrots. Every day, the same birds fly south from their foraging grounds in Nicaragua to their nests in Costa Rica. We counted 87 birds in 1 hour. After dinner, we went night patrolling for turtles and learned about some of the effects that light pollution can have on turtles trying to lay their eggs.
We are excited to share more about our experiences in person when we get home!
