Cinco de Mayo

This summer, a group of Wamogo High School students will be going to Mexico through Operation Wallacea, a British organization that runs scientific research trips for teens around the world. The first week of the trip will be spent exploring the Silva Maya on the Yucatan Peninsula, with an emphasis on studying wildlife biodiversity. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to scuba dive while in Akumal, where they will collect data on sea turtle migrations. Proceeds from the Cinco de Mayo dinner will help the group cover the costs of this amazing trip.
