What is a Junior SeaDoctor?
We asked some of our current Junior SeaDoctors, 6th graders at Orcas Island Elementary School, to tell me what a Junior SeaDoctor is to them. Here’s what they said:
“Someone who helps Wildlife Veterinarians, like Joe Gaydos.” – Elizabeth and Makayla
“Someone who tries to take care of the sea.” – Marina
“Someone who helps save the Salish Sea by cleaning and raising awareness because then you’ll gain more Junior SeaDoctors!” - Isabel, Demetrio, and Molina
We would only add that a Junior SeaDoctor is someone who loves to explore and learn everything they can about the health of marine wildlife and their ecosystems.
