La Ceiba, Honduras – 2008
Living in La Ceiba, Honduras as a volunteer investigating factors that affected the mangrove forest Laguna Cacao, is in my top-ten list of best times of my life. Here I learned about the complex relationships between mangroves and needs of the local community.
I also lived on Utila Island at the Iguana Station, where I combined muddy mangrove walks with lassoing pregnant female Spiny-tailed iguanas (Ctenosaura bakeri).
Amphibian monitoring in The Netherlands – 2004 / 2005
I was part of a team that monitored species and abundance of amphibians in assigned pools. https://www.landschapnoordholland.nl/vrijwilligersgroep/poelenwerkgroep-het-gooi
