Marine Conservation with Greenforce in The Bahamas – Stories from Jemma

Volunteer Stories: Stewart – Diving in The Bahamas with Greenforce

Bahamas- October 09

A Day in the Life of a GMRS Volunteer Settling into life on camp has been easy for everyone on our phase, certainly for me at least. We have a pretty solid routine here.
