Day to day adventures of Unity College

Trafalgar Falls in Dominica’s Rainforest

Howdy y’all,

My name is Karen, also known as quite the Sea World freak, and I’m going to be giving you a quick heads up on what’s up with our trip. While in Dominica from midday March 13th through midday March 21st we will be participating in a number of exciting and educational activities. Of course all this buzz around campus about what we’re doing for our spring break has made many of our peers a little on the green side. Speaking of green, while in Dominica we will be hiking in the beautiful lush green rainforests that cover a large expanse of Dominica’s terrain. In addition to hiking, our group will be snorkeling on various coral reefs. Coral reefs are one of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet and a variety of plants and animals will be on the agenda for discovery. As part of our preparation for this we have been studying the various types of fish that can be found on or near the reefs in Dominica. These include but are certainly not limited too Angelfish, parrot fish, Barracuda, Snapper, Grouper and many types of red fish such as squirrelfish. Other than all that terribly dull “nature stuff”, we’ll be exploring the culture and history of Dominica with trips in to the capital for the weekly market day to get culture shock, fruit, possibly some baskets and oh yeah, souvenirs for “you people”. So enjoy your spring break if you get one, have a good day at work if you don’t, and most importantly if you’re not going to be in the Caribbean like us, try and stay warm!
