And at the times when I’ve not been doing burpies on the Docks in the dark (see this post), my last month has been filled with more flights than a whole forest could offset. Mostly to get to places in the Tropics, in order to have meetings in air conditioned offices, about how to connect up landscapes for biodiversity under the influence of future climate change and habitat loss. (I’m not sure yet how this common practice, even amongst conservation scientists, can be changed. Thoughts welcomed!)
I’ve written a little bit about my recent trips to Ghana and Indonesia on the Condatis website. Overall, it’s been a fascinating ten months in Liverpool for me, working on this Condatis project. I’ve met some very great people, and learnt a huge amount from them and from my new experiences in work and play. At the start of January, I’m migrating north, to the chilly shores of bonny Scotland (to work on PEAT!!), but hope to keep up my ties with Condatis, its great team, and the other cultures and kids I’ve gathered in Scouseland.
