About this cause

About our cause

I will be travelling to Mexico in June 2016 to spend a total of four weeks working as a biology research assistant, helping with projects that monitor biodiversity in terrestrial and marine environments in Mexico, and study relationships between wildlife and native people. For two weeks I will be trained in biodiversity monitoring and data handling in the Calakmul rainforest, surrounded by ancient Mayan ruins. For the latter half of the trip I will be trained to dive and work on marine research including research on sea turtles and Caribbean reef ecology in Akumal. This project will teach me vital skills that I will need for biological field research in the future, as well as allow me to meet a bunch of new, like-minded people and visit some incredible ecosystems. The dive training part of the project will qualify me to dive in open water so that I am able to dive whenever the opportunity arises in the future.
