Every year I visit the Dry Tortugas as part of the field work for my PhD. It’s such a spectacular place given the rich cultural history and natural resources that can be found on the island. As I prepare for my upcoming field work, I can’t help but to reminisce about past trips. I’ve shared photos before of my field work and of the birds themselves, but in addition to photography, I like to create videos. So while a picture may be worth a thousand words, I hope that this video will even more clearly explain the work I do and why I do it.
