A Field Trip Abroad

Our friend Jackson had the opportunity to take a field trip abroad.  During his travels he visited  The Republic of Ecuador which is a country in South America.  It is located in the northwest part of the continent and has the Pacific Ocean to the east.  To the north of Ecuador is Colombia, and Peru borders the west and south of the country.  Jackson has shared with us some images of his trip, which included going to the capitol of Quito and the Galapagos Islands.

Any trash that ends up in our oceans is very harmful to the sea creatures.  It is important to re-use and recycle whenever possible.
