Hopefully somewhere in the jungle

Hello! I am a PhD student at the Leibniz Intitute for Zoo and Wildlife Research. I am conducting fieldwork for my dissertation in the Annamite Mountains of Vietnam and Laos. For a biologist / naturalist this is one of the most spectacular tropical forests in the world. I'll be using leeches to uncover hidded aspects of biodiversity in this region. I would like to use this information to help with species conservation. Few places in the world are as biologically unique and threatened as the Annamites.
