Highland highglights

The University of Manchester’s Field course is fully underway at the moment and we have a really good group of students, who are working very hard and enjoying each day and night here in Costa Rica. Currently we are based in Turrialba, high in the highlands, and staying at lodge that overlooks the Turrialba volcano. Its a wonderful place to work and the past few days we have mainly been investigating the insect, bird, and amphibian fauna of the area.

We have been up early birdwatching, insect collecting, and had nightwalks at the nearby Costa Rican Amphibian Research Centre (CRARC), all of which have bought some wonderful experiences and opportunities for studying highland and mid-elevation species in this highly biodiverse region of the world. Tomorrow we visit the Tropical Agricultural Research Center before heading to the Caribbean lowlands and on to further adventures..
