On your day in the field, you’ll help conserve the rich biodiversity of the Western Ghats. You can make a difference to our current understanding of the populations and distributions of amphibian species.
Your activities will include hands-on training in amphibian research, including handling, photographing, and monitoring frogs and toads. You’ll help take environmental measurements in the field, including air and water temperature, humidity, and data on the vegetation in the area. You’ll help catch and measure frogs, and learn a little about basic biodiversity statistics and writing up scientific findings to help you understand the data you’re collecting.
At the end of the day, you’ll make your personal action plan: we hope you’ll be inspired to make some small changes in your day-to-day life to help conserve the environment.
Note: Field conditions and research needs can lead to changes in the itinerary and activities. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
