Chris Dryburgh recently travelled to Sumatra, on a Conservation Fellowship to take part in the ‘Way Kambas National Park Sumatran Tiger Habitat Regeneration’ Project supported by a Taronga field conservation grant. During the fellowship he will provide training on monitoring amphibians and reptiles in the field.
I'm currently Way Kambas National Park, in south-east Sumatra, we have just completed a full day of workshopping to demonstrate the basic identification and surveying of the Park's broad amphibian and reptile diversity. Tomorrow a group of us will head into the Park for three days to lead a wildlife survey, particularly targeting turtles, frogs and toads.
A second four-day field trip into Way Kambas NP later in the week will focus on another site.
