Over £32m raised for good causes through easyfundraising
This expedition is based in the endemic rich forests of the Wallacea region on Buton Island for the first two weeks, followed by two weeks in the Wakatobi Marine National Park. The first week is split between jungle skills training (including an optional canopy access experience*) and learning about Wallacean wildlife and ecology from lectures and field based practicals, which are carried out in the forests around a small rural village in central Buton. In the second week the group will be moved to the primary forests in the little studied northwest corner of the island and will help a team of biodiversity researchers targeting bird communities, large mammals, bats, reptiles, amphibians and forest structure. The third and fourth weeks will be based on Hoga Island in the Wakatobi. If you are not already dive trained then you will start your time on Hoga with a PADI Open Water dive training course and then in your last week you will complete an Indo-Pacific reef survey techniques course with lectures and dive based practicals. If you are already dive trained when you arrive you start your third week on this Indo-Pacific reef survey techniques course and then join the team of marine scientists working on a range of projects including stereo video surveys of reef fish, 3D mapping of coral reefs, behaviour studies on cleaner fish and fiddler crabs and many other projects.
