Tigga at the SEABCRU Flying Fox Workshop in Cambodia

Tigga spent the last couple of weeks in Cambodia for the SEABCRU Flying Fox Workshop 2013. We started off with a meeting of the Flying Fox Team (Tammy Mildenstein, Sara Bumrungsri, Paul Racey, Kevin Olival, CE Nuevo and Sheema Abdul Aziz) to catch up on some of their writing commitments — which they are doing an awesome job on. Then we prepared for and moved into the SEABCRU Flying Fox workshop, with participants from Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand. The workshop went even better than I could have hoped, and we have made some great new connections for the SEABCRU in Cambodia and southern Vietnam, and got great press coverage in the Cambodian Daily and Phnom Penh Post. More details about the workshop here and here . Thanks to Neil Furey (from the SEABCRU cave team) and Sophany and Sarak at RUPP for being such excellent hosts!.

One, two, mobs (as they'd say in Oz). Part of the workshop focused on counting flying foxes like these Pteropus lylei
