Scavenging kayakers

Environmental Protection in the Caribbean (EPIC) hosted its first-ever Kayak Scavenger Hunt on Saturday. Kayakers participated in a “plant and animal” scavenger hunt or just to enjoy kayaking. Those in the scavenger hunt received a card of some of the common plants and animals seen in and around Simpson Bay Lagoon. The winning team comprised Evelien Smeets and Carmen Mühlenberg who identified and photographed 15 plants and animals. They even identified a number of plants and animals which weren’t on the scavenger card. They received a US $50 gift voucher from The Stone restaurant. The team of Karin Spaink earned second place for finding seven types of plants and animals. EPIC thanked all sponsors for assisting with the educational hunt.
