A New Adventure on South Padre Island


I've been a little MIA lately on iNaturalist since I've recently taken a new position as the Naturalist Educator at the South Padre Island Birding and Nature Center. I'm now starting my second week here. As much as I'm going to miss some of the birds and butterflies back on the mainland, I'm really looking forward to all the new possibilities that will open up as I explore the coastal habitats of the area. I currently do not own suitable camera equipment, nor do I have an internet connection outside of work, but that will all come soon enough (as soon as I finish paying off all my bills from moving). As of now I'm restricted to using my phone to record observations. I'm also happy to say that I will be starting an iNaturalist project for the SPI Birding and Nature Center site and possibly starting a couple of others to study species diversity on the island. I already have a couple of ideas to expand habitat at the center and draw in some more wildlife. If any of my iNaturalist friends are ever on the island don't hesitate to get in touch with me!

I'm already working on my tan and eating lots of ceviche!
