Behind the Scenes

Hi all, Bayley here to reflect on another week full of pleasant surprises and endless rewards. Brian and I were lucky enough to join a commercial shoot in our local community of Kiminawit.

Station Rotations

It’s me, Brian. Welcome to another episode of adventures in El Nido. The past week was filled with travel as we completed our island rotations.

A Welcoming of New and Old

I'm Ziyue, the "IT guy" of the cohort. The interns are concluding our fourth week at the resorts, and as cliche as it sounds, the week seemed to have gone by fastest.

The New BBC: Bianca, Bayley, and Caitlyn

Hi, it’s your favorite (and only) El Nido graduate intern, Caitlyn! This past week at Miniloc Island Resort, I’ve finally started to settle into life in Palawan after the orientation period and newness of living in the Philippines is starting to fade.

Diving Right In

Hey guys it's Bayley. Not many people can say their summer internship involves getting a diving certification, learning to weave a buri purse, bathing pigs, and visiting multiple turtle hatcheries all in one week. However, for the GU Impacts fellows, this past week has been all that and more.

Island Life Begins

Brian here. It was transition week. It began halfway across the Pacific Ocean in Anchorage, Alaska where I boarded a plane that would spend the next twenty hours flying me to Manila.
