Student post: Hertin Gabiriel - Monday, January 5

Hertin Gabiriel is an undergraduate student at the University of Guam. He is originally from the island of Pohnpei.

*************************************
Today, we did a lot of field work. We set up our last three transects to measure hermit crab abundance. We had two transect in southern Saipan and another transect up North, near the Laderan Tangke trail. We will check our transects tonight when the hermit crabs are active.

An interesting part of today was the career panel, which brought up a lot of ideas and knowledge of careers from different people who are working in Saipan. Opportunities are out there for us, it is up to you to make your choice for a lifetime. 

Unfortunately, my crew and I are going out to our last field spots for our last round of data collection tonight, and that will be all for Saipan. Next, we'll get to see what's going on with hermit crabs on Guam. 

Adios Saipan, esta agupa, next Summer.

See you soon, Guam.
