Guam National Wildlife Refuge Ritidian Unit leads lesson on conservation with Guam Green Growth
The Guam Green Growth Conservation Corps spent the day with the Guam National Wildlife Refuge Ritidian Unit to learn more about conservation on the island.
The group was led by Park Ranger Marybelle Quinata, who took the team through the grounds to get a closer look at the obstacles of conservation on Guam.
“Learning more about the effects of climate change, invasive species, littering and pollution from someone who is on the ground is very beneficial for the Corps,” noted G3CC coordinator Phillip Cruz. “Marybelle provided a tour and explained to them the wildlife refuge and the different ecosystems, endangered plants and animals on the reserve.”
The Corps assisted in clearing pathways and learned while helping with trail maintenance and grounds management, also providing more post-typhoon recovery support.
