Ryan shares the latest adventure from our Expedition Leader Training program in the jungle.
The 5 of them were on holiday and were eager to discover what jungle life was like. The 4 of us T.E.L.s (Trainee Expedition Leaders) hadn’t taught jungle skills before so our teaching ability was put to the
test. Topics included:
- fire lighting
- machete usage
- flora and fauna
- jungle construction
The group seemed to enjoy their stint in The Jungle. Their stay concluded with a large bonfire near the river followed by a solo night.
Their solo night was a culmination of all of the skills learned throughout the week. They gathered their thoughts, emotions, and some water in order to spend most of one day and a night in the jungle alone.
Overall the week was an enjoyable experience for both us T.E.L.s and the Marine Conservationists.
