This summer, I took the trip of a lifetime with Loop Abroad. Not only did I work hands-on with animals of all different species (sharks, sea turtles, elephants, bats, fish, water buffalo, dogs, cats, etc) I got to experience the lovely culture of Thailand. While spending my time in Chaing Mai or Koh Tao, I was immersed in extremely valuable knowledge and life lessons. The experience opened myself up to a whole new world of possibilities. The wild tropics program through Loop Abroad also confirmed I want to go to graduate school for biology!
How can this program be improved?
There was a lack of communication at some points between Loop Abroad Staff and our group. I wish we had a more clear outline of the entire trip, as well as more communication about what we would be doing for the day. Also, even though the temples were beautiful, I would advise for future groups not to go to so many temples. I would have rather studied more biology than temples.
Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
