Jim Rosborough shared his experience in volunturism on projects doing marine research with Earthwatch over the past 11 years. Jim has worked on projects in Belize, Aruba, Jamaica, Barbados, Exuma Cays, Puerto Rico, Bonaire, San Salvador, Hawaii and St. John. Earthwatch is currently organizing research projects in the Seychelles, Belize, Thailand and Truck Lagoon. Jim has been a diver and explorer for over 50 years. He grew up on the island of Aruba.

This was a good opportunity to learn about the many ways that us divers can participate in these types of projects. It was a lot of fun finding out about Jimís adventures and experiences. He also plans to get with BAD in the coming year to see about getting a dive trip together to participate in the Belize project. More on that later!!
