I’m writing this as I travel from Seattle to Port Angeles by ferry. Like so many experiences on this trip, it’s my first time driving a vehicle onto a ferry. It’s funny how much you feel growth by small small experiences, like a stonecutter to his slab, as you travel in a new place.
Recently, I visited Seattle Audubon and the Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team (COASST), two organizations filling completely different niches in the conservation of birds and their habitats. I’ve met so many people all doing their part in a small but significant way, and I’m so grateful to be influenced by them.
I’m beginning to feel my next step needs to be in non-governmental organizations (NGO), to learn about their administration and operations. Maybe I can take what I learn and apply it to the Atlantic Flyway someday. Or, stay here on the coast and work for a cause I’m falling for.
