Volunteers helping us to work in conservation

One of our ways to work in the project is working together with volunteers that have the desire to do something for amphibian conservation. In this way we receive volunteers that in different ways they are helping us in different aspects of the project. In this case we have Elana a volunteer that is going to expend a couple of months with us and she is already making a difference with the work she is carrying out at the moment. Here some text that she want to share with us:

Elana working with water quality test in the captive breeding component
Hi my name is Elana Frank and I am recent graduate with a bachelors degree in Biology. I came to the Bolivian Amphibian Initiative because I wanted more experience working with amphibians before I continue my studies in herpetology and conservation. I've only been here for a few days but I'm already learning a lot from the impressive captive breeding program and the great people who work there. I am planning on spending six months with the BAI so I am currently working to come up with a project that I can dedicate that time to (more information to come soon). I'm really excited to be working with this team and I can't wait to see what these next few months bring!
