After getting a good night's rest it was finally my first day to work at SANCCOB! Louise picked me up and we arrived shortly before the 8 a.m. meeting I started to introduce myself to the other volunteers and staff that worked there and ask how I could start to help.
One of the volunteers, Emily, gave me a tour around the area known as "general." "General" is the area where fish prep, cleaning and laundry takes place. By the time she was done showing me around it was time for the morning meeting. At morning meetings staff and volunteers are given their pen assignments so they'll know which chicks they'll be working with that day. I found out that I would be working with Virginia. It was ironic because it was Virginia's last day after spending ten months at SANCCOB and it was my first day. In addition to thanking Virginia for her hard work the last ten months they also welcomed me and thanked me for being able to come help out.
