after extending my contract at Naturalis I now finally have something new to look out for. On January 18 I will fly to Rwanda to visit my father for a period of approximately 2 months. Besides the family visit I will try to enjoy the country and visit several projects regarding nature conservation to get a better view on conservation issues in this part of Africa. I think I will find many similarities with the situation that I encountered in Tanzania.
During this trip I will try to visit the SNV Sustainable Energy programme, Nyungwe forest, Lake Kivu and hopefully Akagera NP. Throughout this period I will keep you updated by using this blog. I am really looking forward to going abroad, however due to the fact that I still have to work up till a week prior to my departure I cannot completely focus on the trip yet…
