About this cause

About our cause

I am undertaking an expedition to Mexico for 6 weeks, as a volunteer research assistant with Operation Wallacea. The first 3 weeks will be spent in the Mayan jungle, learning about and studying local wildlife. This will involve practising ethical sampling techniques to monitor bird and bat populations, and carrying out various measurements of tree dimensions to calculate carbon abundance. After this, I will travel to Akumal Bay for three weeks, where I can assist as a marine biologist conducting ecological surveys of the reef ecosystems, including the turtle population currently at risk from tourist exploitation. The purpose of the trip is to gain experience in conservation research, and contribute towards work that results in regulation of proper and ethical treatment of local and national wildlife.
