My Volunteer Trip to DR

My name is Raphaella Godoy and I'm taking a gap semester to volunteer abroad in the Dominican Republic with Rustic Pathways. I will be working alongside marine conservation experts at Fundemar, an organization dedicated to scientific research and social activism to improve environmental conditions for a variety of marine species. They use its research to encourage best practices and sustainable development within the Dominican Republic’s education system and booming tourism industry. I will aslo be constructing, transplanting, and monitoring coral reef nurseries. As well as other projects including community education programs related to coral reefs, and Fundermar’s permanent campaign to eliminate the invasive lionfish species.
