This project in Colombia is undertaken in Partnership with the environmental consultancy ASM Ambiental, dedicated to environmental education and conservation research projects, for companies and individuals committed to ethical management of natural resources. You might be pleased to hear that it is located in Sincelejo, Sucre, a rural and quiet area of Colombia. 

The programme is appropriate for postgrads (Master's or PhD students and graduates) with knowledge of cell biology/genetics and interest on its application to species conservation.

The study so far has analysed the ecological limiting factors of a species of Trachemys (Pond slider or fresh water turtle) currently threatened of extension. They are ready to enter the next phase of the project conducting molecular genetics studies to understand further  the resilience of the species. 

You will have the opportunity to conduct ground breaking research that will contribute to the recovery and future  management of this species, under the tutoring of experienced Doctors in Science and and ecologists, affiliated to the Univeristy of Sucre. 

The work will involve, collecting samples from the organisms in the wild and taking them to the lab to be analysed to determine the required variables.
