Goodday my name is Wakida Kyla Joseph. I am 15 years old and also a forth form student of the Sir Mc chesney Secondary School. As a participant of the GPS + camera project i have learned alot more about barbuda and have used the infomation in a goodway. Well along with our teacher Ms. Maggie Morrison my classmates and i studied about “how has the mangrove of barbuda changed over time” with that in mind we interviewed people from community, take photo, and actually got indealing with the mangroves. the project lasted 2 weeks and throughout i have learned, have fun and really enjoy the time spent with my teacher ( Ms. morrison).

My main focus for this two weeks session was to test the water quality of the wells here in Barbuda, basically we were seperated into 5 groups, rotating around ourselve, and i was part of 3 out of the 5.
