First of all I must apologize for the lack of updates! The last couple of months have been very busy in the field.  Since the arrival of our volunteer, we have been conducting a comprehensive survey of all the Pemba Flying Fox roosts on the island.  Janine is studying for her MSc in Applied Ecology and Conservation at the University of East Anglia in the UK, and is going to be updating this blogg for the next few weeks while completing her research project on the island.  So far things have been going great, apart from a few delays with fuel, power shortages and some heavy rains work has been continuing successfully.
