i got to learn way more about the environment and help to do some work around this
learnt that coconuts are actually a pest here and the helena and laure were working on research to try and work out a way to get rid of this non native tree
but also i had to talkt o public and give a presentaion on bats, i hate giving presenations but i was in a situaiton that i couldn get out of and i got on with it and my nervees didnt get me and i didnt shake!!!! awesome!! serieously one of the best things to come out of this trip my confidnece and better communication skills
