Adventures in a Jaguar Preserve

Belize -

Zealous is how one could describe our Forest Ecology Professor, Dave Foster's love for everything outdoors, which was coincidentally where we spent the majority of our time the other week during Forest Ecology. We spent time in Cockscomb Basin Jaguar reserve in Southern Belize studying the forest, spotting tons of wildlife, and doing field research projects. Some of us did projects studying leaf cutter ants, tropical flowers, or tropical birds and their social behavior.

Throughout the week our eyes were further opened to the beauty and wonder of God's creation. By the end of the week, we had all gained a little bit sharper lens to see the hand of our God at work all around us.
