"The Cetacean Conservation project in Nicaragua is a super project associating scientific research and public outreach in order to preserve cetaceans. I'm proud to be part of this adventure which allows me to use my scientific skills for an environmental purpose. I admire Joelle De Weerdt, the project director, for her enthusiasm and perseverance to improve things in Nicaragua. For me, it was a first professionnal experience, but also an extraordinary human adventure, the discover of another culture and meeting of passionated people. This experience was about fieldwork close to animals, between research, wonder and hard work. An unforgettable experience!"- Courteille Marine
