Wildlife journalist Amelia is tasked with writing the feature story for Geographic Life’s centennial issue.

Although she writes about places, people and animals from around the world, Puerto Rico will be her first true adventure.

When Amelia arrives in Puerto Rico, the head of the conservation facility, Fernando, is skeptical. However, after talking it through with one of his mentors, Fernando agrees to take Amelia around the island and show her the beauty of the work that he and his company do to protect Puerto Rico’s animals.
