Over the past month I have been travelling through North America, up from San Francisco to Vancouver, Canada. If you have been following the blog you will know of some of my recent exploits – however if not, you may want to take this opportunity to look back over my previous few posts.
Having come to the end of my trip I am able to reflect back on what an enriching experience it has been. While travelling northward I have visited many cultural and academic institutions, met fellow herpetologists, delivered lectures and found an array of interesting flora and fauna. Throughout this experience I have witnessed new practices and engagement activities, which I intend to share with work colleagues back in Manchester and use in developing what the museum can offer in the future, thus improving our already world-class institution.
The highlight of the trip for me was attending the World Congress of Herpetology. It was great to mix and share ideas with top international experts and proudly represent the University of Manchester. It has been an exceptionally interesting and fruitful trip. I would sincerely like to thank the University for supporting me, and am very grateful to all the people I have spent time with during my time in North America for making it so special.
