Our 2013 summer season in Canada began with a wonderful staff training, which was unfortunately followed by the unexpected serious illness of a young staff member – Noah Latchem. Due to the power of the eagle and the dedication of a super medical team, Noah was able to make a complete recovery. Noah has written a story about Seascape, which has been featured in major newspapers across Canada including the Montreal Gazette. You can read his story here.
Staff member Thomas Enderlin wrote an article in Nature Air’s inflight magazine, Nature Landings April-May 2013 edition, about the Seascape experience in Curu Wildlife Refuge, one of the locations for many of Seascape’s trips in Costa Rica. You can read more here.
