I hope you can help us share this next fundraiser far and wide and not only help me and my education but also help the planet and reduce your single use plastic waste by buying one of the Zikomo Beeswax Food Wraps
I have been so wrapped up in my own drama, I have totally forgotten to even tell you about the big international conference I was organising during the last month for African Bat Conservation...
Check out this post to find out more about a few of the bat species we have caught recently (during our research with ABC)
I arrived back in Malawi all good despite an uncomfortable journey and was picked up from the airport and taken back to my home huts at Kumbali...
This weekend just gone we managed to have an African Bat Conservation Reunion together with most staff, volunteers and interns from the last few months...
We also had a braai night on Sunday night, but sadly this will be the last for Tom as he is going back to the UK, due to all this crazy virus stuff going on... We are going to be a musketeer down in the bat team.
We managed to get an extra night in of surveying and managed to go down to the banana plantation for one last survey attempt…but the rain halted that and back to camp we went.
Daniel and Bridget arrived this week from the Bat Conservation and Research Unit in the UK for a scoping trip with African Bat Conservation. I was super excited to have them hear as I was working with them both in England!
After Emma’s departure and a few days off, Tom and I spent a few days scoping out a new site for a potential new African Bat Conservation project, with bats and farms.
We managed to pack so much in to the week as we had so many different things to talk about, sort out and also a few road trips for meetings. My favourite thing was visiting Kuti Wildlife Reserve, I love this place!
