Benvenuti will be joined by Jason Kohler and Alex Press from Keys Weekly Newspapers, and Ophthalmologist Robert Douville, M.D., to share their experiences of the humanitarian trip.

In addition, they met with representatives from non-governmental conservation organizations focused on coral preservation and sea turtle preservation. Benvenuti and his group will share tales from their journey as well as some of the 4,000 images shot of the Caribbean nation.
