This is my first full day in Nova Scotia. I met the rest of the Earthwatch team at the airport. It was exciting to meet everyone. There are 9 of us on the team. 6 are teachers from all over the US. 3 are doing Earthwatch as a learning vacation. This is also the first time we meet Christina and Chris, the two scientists who have been studying animals in Nova Scotia since 2006. They are doing their research for the University of Oxford.
