As the group closed out our final days in Lisbon, we spent a night under the stars observing and reflecting about life beyond what we knew and what we know now. The group's dedication, enthusiasm, and energy for aquatic life and sustainability was celebrated one final time at the Lisbon aquarium. Lastly, we gathered in the city center for a farewell dinner with the leaders, partner staff, and biologists that taught us along the way. These last 3 weeks were filled with fun, laughter, and endless memories we will all takeaway with us. The friendships grew fast and deep. As a group we will never stop learning and continuing our passion for conservation, aquatics, and sustainability. Portugal became our home away from home. Muito obrigado per tutto.
