Practice Practice Practice #CUinFiji14

Drew, Joshua Adam

We have been in Fiji for four days and are making admirable progress towards nailing down all those little tasks which invariably pop up when planning a two month expedition. Thankfully Suva, the capital of Fiji, is small enough that we can travel around to almost everywhere we need with relative ease.

That being said, I think we were all anxious to start collecting some data. Next week we are running a short course on marine conservation, and the week after that is the Society for Conservation Biology’s Oceania regional meeting. Both fun things, but it means we’re not getting into the water until mid-July. We are using this Suva time well though. Today one of the grad students, Molly McCargar decided we should practice taking pH’s from gut contents, which will be the main aspect of her field work this summer.
