Communication was right at the top of our agenda for Day 13. We were met by tour guides and researchers from the Universidad Estatal Amazónica for a fascinating discussion. We had sought out and gathered a top team of scientists from a range of fields related to our project for this meeting. The Goethe-Institut (and others) had helped us to find suitable candidates, so a huge thank you goes out to them!
Together, we held seminars on our areas of expertise and chatted about the exciting projects we could potentially work on together.
The day flew by and before we knew it, we were heading to the Finca Palmonte nature reserve that evening. Christian didn’t waste any time in capturing nocturnal insects. And he was in luck! Using his UV light, net and camera, he managed to capture an insightful snapshot of the diverse moth population in the area.
