Alternative Spring Break Takes Y Students to Costa Rica’s Rainforests

During spring break, I was one of 12 students who went to Costa Rica for the Caltech Y Alternative Spring Break trip. The group consisted of both undergraduates and graduate students across all majors, but everyone shared a strong love of the outdoors and protecting our planet Earth. Our goal was to volunteer with research scientists at Osa Conservation’s research center in Costa Rica to learn about it’s conservation efforts.
