I and Chris Vick, were privileged to spend time last night with the volunteers and interns that make the WDCS NA office such a success.
The NA team were joined by volunteers and interns, recent and past in a tribute to all those who have worked so hard to help whales and dolphins on the east coast of the USA.
In a fitting tribute Regina and Sue acknowledged each volunteer and intern, identifying the unique contribution that each colleague had made to cetacean conservation. It reminded me (again) that WDCS could not achieve anything like the success we do without the outstanding commitment of volunteers.
In retaliation the interns also honoured Sue and Regina for their leadership and mentoring of them and their work.
Me, I just felt good that we were part of such an organisation
