The work that I was able to carry out in Selva Verde, while taking the Mammals Study internship in Costa Rica, definitely fulfilled my expectations. I was able to use and try out a wide range of sampling and surveying techniques. I have gained valuable experience that I will be able to take with me into my future studies. It was amazing to be able to experience such a great forest with such rich ecosystems and biodiversity. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. This aided greatly with my work and also made my time here more enjoyable!
