Thank You From SEA TURTLE

It's been an amazing experience to work with the SEA TURTLE group for the last five months. Words don't really begin to describe it...but I'll try. From the beginning we cheered each other on during our swim tests (Reminisce here, here, here and here), supported each other during classes (More on our fascinating lecturers here, here, here and here!), helped our nervous dive buddies in the pool (See how far we've come here, here, here ,here and here), and had an incredible—and for some, life changing—week aboard the R/V Coral Reef II in the Bahamas.

We'd like to take this time to thank all the individuals and organizations that helped make this trip possible. We are entirely grateful to the New England Aquarium for supporting this idea from the very beginning. We'd also like to thank the Shedd Aquarium for also thinking this was one cool idea!

One of our supporters, Lise Weller, even hand-made glass necklaces for every student:
