I came across an article in the newspaper concerning this non-profit organization. It was an expedition following the migration of whales in Loreto, Mexico. They were promoting the organization as a vacation. Your vacation is actually part of a scientific study.
There you are among scientists helping with the study.
They have all types of expeditions in different parts of the world. You write down notes, dig up bones, or count turtles.
I have always been a science freak.
