If you are seriously interested in, and able to afford, supporting a research expedition and would like to go along with me to Central America, South America, or Africa, email me and we can discuss it. Field research is not Club Med but it is a unique and fascinating experience. You would need to be physically fit and either able to snorkel or willing to learn. What does it cost? It costs roughly $3000-$5000 for a few weeks in the field in Central America (airfare, ground transportation, accomodation).
