Talk summary:

This summer I spent a month volunteering for Operation Wallacea, an organisation running a series of conservation research programmes in different locations around the world. And for me, the location was Madagascar, the crazy island off the Southeastern coast of Africa that is home to innumerable species found nowhere else on earth. In those four weeks, I made friends with Sifaka lemurs, played with boas and chameleons, swam with sea turtles and had overall one of the most incredible months of my life.
