Previous interns experiences
Creating a camera-trapping protocol for the assessment of animal biodiversity in an area of Palawan Island, Philippines
Date: March to April 2019
Duration: 1 month
Location: Palawan, Philippines
Intern: Eléa Delsaux
Grade: Undergraduate (3rd year student)
“My job was first to prepare the field study by developing a camera trapping protocol, in order to assess the animal biodiversity of this area and to get confirmation of the presence of bearcats. Agathe was there to answer my questions and to guide me in that exercise. During my last week of internship, we went to El Nido to install camera traps in the new study site. I really loved being in the field, that was… awesome ! I was also able to follow all the work Agathe is undertaking. So I discovered the job of a researcher, all its aspects, and what it means to work for the preservation of a species. On top of that, Agathe also introduced me to Palawan and its culture, its beautiful places, its inhabitants… I not only fell in love with the binturong, but also with Palawan, its landscapes are more than gorgeous.”
