Emma Thomas is a biological conservationist currently based out of Cheshire, England. She completed her BSc at Bangor University, and gained an MSc at Lancaster University. She has worked with several conservation projects elsewhere in the world, including reintroducing locally extinct scarlet macaws in Mexico, and Critically Endangered Hawksbill turtles in Barbados. She is currently in Nicoya peninsula, Costa Rica, working on a banding project which aims to monitor and conserve indigenous avifauna. The days are long, and the terrain tiring, but she hopes to be able to share some her photos, thoughts, and activities throughout the week.
