I made it! I am in Cape Verde!
The past couple of days have been very hectic. I have been meeting the people from the project, planning my experiments, acclimating myself to the hot African weather… but I am all set now: I have everything I need for my research, a working internet connection for my blog, and an overwhelming desire to go out on the beach and see the turtles!
Tonight I will go on patrol for the first time. Hopefully I will see my first turtle of the season! If it all goes well, I will tell you all about it tomorrow.
In the meantime, please read about the project I am working with on my newly updated page. This will give you a good idea of the conservation work I will be doing here!
