Field staff porch desk at the WCS office in Libreville. It's a great office location with a nice breeze!
On Friday I'll travel south to Evengue Lodge, my base for the next 2 weeks while I survey Fernan Vaz. This is the only lagoon system in Gabon that I haven't surveyed yet, and possibly an important use areas for manatees, although it has the highest human population of any lagoon in Gabon and was the site of an oil spill last winter. So it is likely to be the most compromised system I've surveyed so far but I'm interested to learn more about it. More soon once I start fieldwork!
