We woke up to a cool, yet sunny morning and watched the fog as it receded across the valley. We all met for breakfast at 7:30. After breakfast we all worked together to collect the camera traps that Vered used for her research projects and reassembled the small rodent traps that Eilish and Ashley had cleaned the day before. The rest of the morning was spent working on research projects and catching up on journals.
A lunch of sandwiches and sausage rolls were served at 1:00. It was then that the Gush family stopped by so that the kids, Emma and James, could say their good-byes. As a surprise for Andrew, James brought one of his roosters, Golden Boy, to say good-bye as well. A few of the students went to meet the beautiful bird.
The remainder of the day we spent diligently analyzing data, preparing powerpoints, and perfecting oral presentations for our research projects. Time ticked away and before long the hour was upon us. We met in the lodge at 5:00 and the presentations began. About an hour later the presentations were done and we could all breathe a sigh of relief, as we were finally done. Supper was served shortly after, which was lasagna, quiche, squash, and salad. After completing our projects, everyone was exhausted, so we turned in for an early night.
