Lately in Pez maya...!

During the weekend many GVI volunteers took off on adventures off base. A bunch of the crew visited Cancun to wave goodbye to those who were leaving the expedition for good; a pack of people went wreck diving in Puerto Morelos, whereas several others visited one of the Intern job placements and checked out the excellent diving. This week we have additional volunteers joining us (a big shout out to Teresa, Holly, Julia, Charlene, Al, and Dov!)

So far the ocean has been a bit too unruly to take the boats out so volunteers have continued teaching English in Punta Allen, participating in coral, fish and monitoring tests and even received an interesting lecture about  manatees that can be found in the surrounding aquatic areas.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the winds and waves die down so that all Pez Mayans can get on down in that delicious blueness of an ocean and monitor the reef ecosystem! (We’ll let you know next week..)

Big smiles,

Neil, Freja and Thalie
