Prometheus Team Members Take Trip to Madagascar

Following in the footsteps of Dr Malcolm Russell from last year, our Director of Sales, David Preece and Receptionist, Louise Preece travel to Madagascar on July 19th to assist on a two week bio-diversity project being carried out by Op Wallacea.

Operation Wallacea is a series of biological and conservation management research programmes that operate in remote locations across the world. These expeditions are designed with specific wildlife conservation aims in mind - from identifying areas needing protection, through to implementing and assessing conservation management programmes. What is different about Operation Wallacea is that large teams of university academics who are specialists in various aspects of biodiversity or social and economic studies are concentrated at the target study sites giving volunteers the opportunity of working on a range of projects.

David, Louise and the rest of the bio-diversity project team will be based in the remote village of Zanavo in the Ifotaka Region which is predominantly Spiny Thicket Forest. Whilst there, they will be assisting in the study of Lemurs, reptiles, birds and invasive plants.

The rest of Prometheus wish David and Louise a safe trip and look forward to hearing all about their adventures when they return!
