I found out recently that I received my research grant from PCI to get back to Madagascar this September. Yay! So that will cover my flight and a few other things. We currently have enough in the ZAZA local monitoring team account to pay the local assistants to start up work in a few weeks and continue until late August. Past that we still need to continue fundraising. Another thing I found out this season from the local Peace Corps volunteer was that when he asked the older students in the village what they wanted to do when they grew up (he was putting on a work shop with career professionals, doctors, teachers, etc.), they ALL said they wanted to work in the forest when they grow up. Being a guide for researchers in the forest is seen as the best, most reliable, enjoyable and well paid work by kids in the village!!
