CAC is centered around learning how to preserve what’s important to you, whether it’s a Hawaiian monk seal on the shore or a spinner dolphin twirling through the waves.  CAC has not only strengthened my understanding of how to conserve such things, but also provides me with experiences of a lifetime.  From exploring the Hawaiian rainforest, to climbing to the top of the world at 10,000 feet, and swimming through the deep blue oceans, CAC has revealed Hawaii’s diverse ecology and the organisms within each ecosystem.  The program has also opened my eyes to Hawaii’s various cultures and has shown me 112 new species of insects, birds, fish, and mammals.  I’m extremely grateful for this program and wouldn’t trade the knowledge I’ve gained from it for the world.
