SEA Currents: Jan 2020
January 06, 2020
Here, at the Woods Hole campus, SEA Semester students are split between two chosen programs: Caribbean Colonization to Conservation and Global Ocean: New Zealand. As part of the latter group, we were further divided into three houses: A, B, and C. I live in A-house with seven other people, which more closely resembles a blue cottage with four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Hello! This is C Watch! Today we mustered on the quarterdeck in the morning to discuss guidelines for snorkeling, as well as reef studies that we would contribute to. We separated into three groups: Group 1 counted parrot fish, which are indicative of coral health; Group 2 counted echinoderms, mollusks, worms and lobsters to research biodiversity; and Group 3 counted recruit versus adult corals.

Hello, from the British Virgin Islands! A Watch is officially taking over the blog for our first day in the British Virgin Islands (BVI). Rick and Audrey graciously went to shore to clear our Caribbean travels with customs. Everything went along swimmingly and we were even lucky enough to get all of our passports stamped!

SEA community events, held regionally, are a great way to keep up with SEA news and reconnect with or meet new shipmates. We send invitations by email based on your last known address.

Hello! This is C Watch/Caribbean Watch taking over the blog! Today marks the beginning of a new decade and the end of another day in paradise. During deck watch this afternoon, we cycled through our typical duties, which included boat checks, managing the helm and lookout.
