Eric’s photos here capture what he saw of the trip to Barbuda and the subsequent trip to the frigate bird sanctuary.
The kids and I had never been to Barbuda before and were really looking forward to it.
Today I went out to York Island with Karron, along with another EAG board of directors member named Ashton Williams, and the field technicians Shawn and Tahambay who are always an integral part of the excursions onto the islands. The purpose of this excursion was to bait and monitor traps to keep rats off the island in order to protect the ecology of the island.
One of the things I remember most about the time I spent in Antigua during my childhood are seeing flowers everywhere around my Grandparent’s house.
After surfing I walked past the remnants of a mangrove swamp. “These are whistling ducks” he said of the brown ducks we passed. “They are endangered but their starting to make a little bit of a comeback”. My friend, a local, paused to watch them “I tell you … man do they ever taste good” he said.
