Three weeks in and I'm back in the field - trapping. The heart and soul of the work I do in Tanzania is the Capture-Mark-Recapture study. I am fortunate enough to work with some of the most experienced pest researchers and pouched rat experts the world. These amazing individuals don't get the credit they deserve.
These men keep the "lights on" if you will, with this study when I'm in the States. I'll be sharing more about the great work they and other scientists in my host department, Pest Management Center of Sokoine University of Agriculture, during my #AfricanSTEM highlights.
Follow along in real time (well, 7-10 hours ahead of U.S.) on Twitter @DNLee5 and #DispatchesDNLee on IG DNLee5. All the fun, all the food. All of the Adventures! LOL.
For now, check out my amazing and itch-tastic Week 3 in the field. My amazing social media intern puts these Storify recaps together. Be sure to follow her too on Twitter (@Intheknowshow)
