"Plovers" by Ethan, 19 | Costa Rica
These shorebirds flew all the way from the upper Midwest. It's fun to realize how these birds can thrive in both the Pacific Ocean and the little rivers and lakes of Wisconsin.
About Ethan: "My name is Ethan. I am originally from Neillsville, WI. In my life, I have had rough patches. I did alright through middle school and elementary school but toward high school and graduation time, I struggled with depression and drug and alcohol abuse. Passage was a great program that helped me see what was important and helped me turn my life around. Corcovado National Park was just stunning. We’d wake up and go out hiking and everything was new and amazing. There was always something new and exciting around every corner. It’s opportunities like this that make me even more grateful for everything that everyone has done for me."
