Talking to the Pros

 Ms. Bride’s Spanish IV class Skyped with Jake Kheel, Environmental Director of Punta Cana Resort in the Dominican Republic .  Her students have been reading about the social and environmental impacts of tourism in developing counties.  Jake, who has a Masters in Environmental Management from Cornell,  interned at the resort in 2005 and has been there ever since setting the standards for sustainable tourism development.  It was a fascinating call and some of the kids want to go intern for him! http://puntacana.org/pioneers/index.html
