The setting: somewhere in New Mexico. Oil field waste pits have not been properly netted to protect wildlife from their toxic mixture. Migratory birds, mistaking these holding ponds for water, have become trapped and died. The oil companies are in clear violation of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, but Fish and Wildlife Special Agents need help in building their case. How many birds have been affected? How many species? Are any endangered? Time to call Pepper Trail, bird detective....

Katie Stevens works in the Accounting Department of Zegrahm Expeditions. Having worked here for two years, she was thrilled when she got the opportunity to join her first Zegrahm expedition to the Galápagos Islands. 

When I first began working at Zegrahm Expeditions, the idea of experiencing one of our trips in person sounded so farfetched; imagine my joy when I found out I was headed to the Galápagos Islands this past July! After months of preparing, I couldn’t believe my...
