Meet Bethany from Mahabo, volunteer extraordinaire

09I certainly got lucky this summer—a Peace Corps volunteer who’s working in Madagascar emailed me out of the blue to see if I could use some help with my field work. She’s teaching English in a small village east of Morondova and had some flexibility in her summer schedule. I wasn’t quite sure what an English major (Duke graduate no less!) would think about all this tromping through the woods, chasing small primates. But she’s been fantastic—a huge help and a saving grace for my mental stability in the field. We’ll look forward to an entry from her later on this summer—she’ll tell us in her own words what it’s like to work with an ecologist in the field. But to tide us over until then, here’s a little video introduction……

Hey Meredith! I don't know if those lemurs keep you as busy as Gracie does me, but you keep on top of your blogging much better than I do! We're glad to see you in some of your blog photos and videos! You certainly look like a pro at the field work!
