When you are on a frontier project for a long time, you have a lot of people coming and going. Mostly it’s the volunteers but sometimes it happens with roommates as well. In this climate of change, there is however one constant: Nibbles.
Our trip to Diego was brought about through wanting to re-establish old connections with our partner university in Diego Suarez (Antsiranana). I’d say that after an intense three days of lengthy taxi bruosse journeys, Malagasy meals, and many confusing meetings with me trying to follow in my terrible French, we have accomplished this.
Rosanna and Ellen describe their favourite moments from their visit to the town of Diego and the University of Diego with Frontier. Rosanna was a judge for a debate organised with the tourism students at the University regarding the construction of a new hotel in Ankarana National Park and it led to some interesting results! Ellen managed to visit the Tropical gardens in Diego in the morning and even got a private tour!
Last weekend our staff and some of our volunteers headed to Diego University to give talks and presentations as well as re-establish old connections which will be beneficial in the future conservation of the areas and communities we work in.
