The Green Group Studio team takes our commitment to conservation and eco-friendly practices (both at home and in the office) seriously. That's why we spend every Earth Day celebrating our planet and learning new ways to keep it happy and healthy. Over the past nine years, we've spent Earth Day doing everything from touring a wildlife sanctuary right here in South Florida to teaching children about the environment. This year, we enjoyed an educational and team-building trip to the Gumbo Limbo Nature Center located in Boca Raton, Florida.

On a self-guided tour of the boardwalk, our team learned about the trees from which the center got its name, as well as other local wildlife. Although the walk is only a quarter of a mile, Gumbo Limbo owns 20 acres of protected barrier island in order to give the many plants and animals that live here in South Florida—some of which are rare and endangered species—a safe place to grow and thrive.

We then made our way to the on-site Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Facility to learn more about the center's rehabilitation practices and processes. We learned that Gumbo Limbo monitors more than 800 nests located on over five miles of beach, and rescues and releases more than 9,000 stranded hatchlings each year! We also learned more about how pollution in our waters is greatly damaging sea turtles, and how just a little effort on our part can make a huge difference in these animals' lives.

The GGS team had such a wonderful time this Earth Day learning about our local wildlife! If you want to contribute, learn more, or plan your own trip to Gumbo Limbo, go to www.gumbolimbo.org.
