Graham Birch (Meerkat volunteer – UK)

I’ve developed a keen interest in researching group-living species throughout my years at Exeter, culminating in my masters thesis on group conflict in ants, and i’ve also had the opportunity to gain a wide range of field experience from field courses in Iceland, Mongolia and Costa Rica, a 2 month research assistant position in North Cyprus helping to conserve turtles, and planning and carrying out my own 5 week expedition assessing change in biodiversity of a rich area of threatened coastal forest in Madagascar.  This project is the perfect opportunity to focus this experience towards the dynamics of group-living species, like meerkats – the area of research I want to work in for the foreseeable future.
