Location: Great Harbor, Peter Island
This morning we sailed back to where we started, West End. From there, we walked to the side of the water with a mangrove plant nursery. We learned a brief lesson about mangroves and why they are vital to the survival of the land and sea. The Lifeworks kids split up into groups. Some counted the number of growing mangroves, while some took measurements and coordinates. We received shore time and arrived back at the boat with a variety of snacks. After our shore time, we motored to Great Harbor Peter to work with more mangroves. We ended the night with Mexican night, cleaning up, and watching Elf.
