  1. Such a cute little critter of the jungle. What have you been doing besides enjoying your new surroundings and life in the wild?

    1. The volunteer work here at the research station is pretty varied. I just finished putting the final touches on a nesting area for a long-term captive group of Yellow Foot Tortoises. The tortoises have lived here for several years and have yet to produce any offspring. I’m hoping all my years working with captive tortoises will help me to get this group into reproductive mode. If successful, we will then begin to bolster the wild tortoise population in the jungle surrounding the station.

      I’m also providing assistance to a fairly broad group of researchers studying everything from native fish populations, to birds, plants, mammals, and insects. I am really looking forward to being part of a wild Wooly Monkey study starting in early October. We will be in some pretty remote jungle for 10 days at a time.

      I will try to keep posting regular photos to the blog. My primary camera was destroyed during an airline baggage handling mishap, and so far I’m having a bit of a rocky relationship with the new one. Frustrating, but I hope to be proficient with it soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

      All the best,
      Dan

      1. I am sure the folks at the research station are thrilled to have you as part of the team with all of your experience working with captive tortoises. Can’t wait to see more remote jungle photos. Sorry to hear about your camera, but no doubt you will be proficient soon. The photos you have posted so far are amazing. Enjoy your adventure and rest assured that your fans are always happy to see what you see on your travels. Take care and be well, my friend.
