Friends Field Course Fun!

Despite the visit from our friend Tropical Storm Arthur, the students enrolled in a conservation based summer course at Friends were excited to get out and snorkel Snake Cay during a short rain break. At this site, we reviewed the many juvenile fish that utilize mangroves as nursery habitats.

Because the weather didn’t stay on our side, we headed back to Friends to dissect some Checkered Puffer fish stomachs for stomach content analysis. Allison will give an update on what we have found in stomachs soon!

With the help of these students, we were able to dissect over half of our samples! Thanks for your hard work!
