Here are some updates after 3 months mission here in Palawan:
After my arrival in the office of ABConservation here in Puerto Princesa on October 8th; office which is also my home; I directly dive in my mission.
As I already know Philippines, and as I was very impatient ...
As I already know Philippines, and as I was very impatient after months of waiting, I shorten my observation period in order to offer an output for the work here.
In collaboration with Jib and Joy we wrote and submit the renewal for our agreements in order to continue our scientific mission here. Most of these agreements end up end of 2021, unfortunately we couldn’t reach all our objectives: restrictive measures due to Covid didn’t let us go on the field in 2020 and 2021; so, we didn’t manage to catch a Binturong to put a collar on it to follow it on his natural habitat.
Due to many changes of management we had to go many times in the administration in charge of the agreements to have all clear for the arrival of the new scientific manager.
Education situation in Philippines and specially in Palawan is quite complex currently ....
I had to put in pause my mission on education; but I met various partners in order to start this program as soon as possible. Education situation in Philippines and specially in Palawan is quite complex currently (soon we will post an article on it to give you more information)
Many very interesting encounters allow me to be very optimistic concerning the future of our different projects here; even if; I have to admit; it takes a lot of time.
For my life here I’m currently alone in the office/home of ABConservation (Joy stayed just few weeks) et I’m very impatient to see the arrival of the new volunteers, my futures housemates. The house was a little damaged by the typhoon (cf article on Typhoon) and I try my best to fix things.
