Malawi: Training days

Update from our Malawi expedition working on cats, primates, elephants and African biodiversity www.biosphere-expeditions.org/malawi

After a day of getting to Vwaza from Lilongwe, the next two days of the expedition are dedicated to training. This includes talks on the study species, research background, hands-on training on maps, GPS, compass, datasheets, bat net erection, behaviour in the bush, cars, etc., etc. It’s intense, but necessary if we want to generate good research data, which is what it’s all about. And it’s excellently fuelled by the most important

Our scientists have prepared remarkably well, thank you, so it has gone smoothly. Tomorrow we start with our research work. We have hippo transects, bat surveys, vegetation surveys and much more on the programme…

Stay tuned.

And because she really wanted it… 🙂
