Third Annual Trinidad Research Trip is Success
June 28, 2017Left to Right: Madeline Woods (Sophmore Biology major) from Murfreesboro, TN; Dr. Doug Dorer (Associate Biology professor MMC); Keisha Alexis (Biology teacher at Toco Secondary School, Toco, Trinidad); CalliAnna McDonald (Junior Biology major) from Hohenwald, TN; Dr. Stanton Belford (Assistant Biology professor MMC) In its third year, the MMC study abroad trip to Trinidad was once again a success. The group arrived on June 18, right on the cusp of Tropical Storm Bret. Drs. Stanton Belford and Doug Dorer used the aftermath of the storm for a learning experience by having the MMC students collect data on coral distribution after the storm activity to determine what effects the storm had on distribution. The group went on an excursion to the Asa Wrights Nature Center where they toured the beautiful, mountainous area to view various hummingbirds and trees. Dr. Dorer spent his birthday doing one of his favorite things—viewing birds. This was a big hit with the students and will be added as part of the Spring Breakaway activities. Also, the group visited a turtle sanctuary where students had the opportunity to guide baby leatherback turtles from the streets back toward the direction of the ocean. On the last day of the trip, MMC faculty and students presented two microscopes to the biology teacher at Toco Secondary School located in Trinidad, within the vicinity of the coral reef, strengthening the bond between MMC and this high school. Thanks to the Alumni Council, the Biology Department, Gamma Beta Phi and our international studies adviser, Dr. George Cheatham, for their continued support in this program.
