As a Conservation Scientist, it’s important to have a thorough understanding of the animal you are studying, and the environment in which it lives. This often involves spending long periods of time in the middle of nowhere conducting field surveys and, in my case, at the mercy of miniature predators such as leeches, ticks and mosquitoes in hot and humid rainforest. Surveys are a necessary routine when playing wildlife detective. Usually repeated over several weeks, months or years, depending on your animal and scientific questions, they provide a range of valuable information on a chosen species, helping us to build a picture of their behaviours such as habitat selection, diet, and mating habits.
