First biodiversity survey

Conservation International with the project field team have just completed a 5 day biodiversity survey at Laclubar and Mount Diatuto protected area. The team surveyed 3 tree plantation areas a at Laclubar. Experts trained and guided the field staff in capturing small mammals, amphibians and reptiles. Birds were also recorded. Results will be shared later but here are a few photos in the meantime! Big thanks to Conservation International staff, Sergio Barreto and Trudi Dale for organising the survey and including our project staff in the training.
