Tropical living

When you're camping in a tropical country the living conditions are going to be more strained than in Western Countries. Despite this, the accomodations went above and beyond what they could have been and we were well taken care of under the project manager.

Before i came to the camp i wasn't sure what i was expected to do. However, camp changed that and i've grown into a much more confident researcher.

Costa Rica Surveys

In general surveys were easy and i didn't feel training needed to be changed particularly. Instead of information about different species there could be more about the reasons and aims of the conservation.

Madagascar Healthcare

The staff were warm and welcoming. answer all my questions upon arrival fully. Flo and Celine made me comfortable to begin my project. They were helpful and explained things clearly and concise so I eased into the project quickly and comfortably.

I absolutely loved it all. At first it was nerve wrecking especially with teaching. But the people were welcoming and engaging and allowed me to make the most of such a short space of time .

Marine Surveying

During my time I was able to join 1 Mangrove survey and many beach cleans as well on my final week they introduced a Nudibranch survey which I actively got involved in and found to be interesting. Overall there was a decent amount of dives much more than the field brief would lead volunteers to think which is definitely a good thing.

Having read all the documents and information online in depth before-hand I did not find any surprises, little has changed since the camp tour video other than the gym is less maintained and a new long drop has been erected.

Camp is much cleaner than I expected and particularly the risk of barefoot around camp is not true and the sand does not harbour risks. Mosquitoes have not been a huge problem and in general wildlife has been quite scarce other than the odd snake or spider around the long drop which is to be expected.

Food has been superb particularly as the field brief leads you to believe it will be purely rice and beans which is not true, even when it is they are well seasoned with a decent serving of vegetables too. Re-supplies happen regularly (Monday and Thursday) which means they are generally always fresh and in good condition other than a few bananas as it gets close to the next re-supply. Staff are friendly and open to allow you to help and on a few occasions I have been able to actively get involved in the cooking which is something wanted to do and glad they were open to permit this, in particular the bean burgers I heavily got involved in.

My time in Tenerife!

I feel the trip was goo overall. I feel that there are many things to do on the island, but the heat sometimes does not help :). However, what we do for the whales, dolphins and the community is very good and made me happy. I think the introduction of fans in each room should become a necessity.
