Abigail, Hannah & Hannah go to Belize!

Hannah Marsland (Leader), Abbie Middleton and Hannah Allen were selected to travel to Belize with Girlguiding North West England with 'Frontier' to survey Manatees and Mangroves as well as working in a summer school and completing a beach clean.

Here is what Abbie had to say about the adventure:

"I loved going out on the boat and snorkelling and really enjoyed the summer school we helped at. Also, a part that I wouldn’t expect to find interesting but actually loved was the lectures, Dagny from Frontier charity was amazing at explaining everything about the wildlife and the reef.

We did surveys of the manatees, parrot fish, mangrove and seagrass; we did a beach clean, we worked at a summer school, taught the kids guiding songs, we met up with a girlguiding group in Belize.

We went to a Mayan ruins and trekked through the jungle.

It was an incredible experience, and I thoroughly enjoyed it; it was a great learning adventure and I will hold the memories forever."
