So, it looks like I’m going to be assisting in a proper ecological survey of freshwater turtles in a remote part of Australia. I say proper in that it’s not a university thing, but is being done by a private firm for the government.

So this is going to be my first survey that isn’t organised and directed by a university.

I think the whole survey is over 8 days, but I’m only assisting for 2-3 days of those days.

So yeah. Any hints or tips on what to bring? Easy food ideas?

And anyone have any recommendations on readings for freshwater turtle surveying? Haven’t gotten the details yet but once I do then I’ll have a more specific look at what to expect and be ready for.

Ps. I’ve also asked the person directing this similar questions, just looking for more perspectives.
