“The trip has strengthened my desire to be a vet. I now feel like I have a stronger sense of my path in life. I would suggest this trip to anyone interested in veterinary medicine, but also people interested in conservation, animals in general, marine biology and a whole lot of other interests. This trip not only gives us a hands on experience with veterinary medicine but also a deeper look at many problems that face our world today.” Mary, high school alumna
