Interested in Stories and/or News from Madagascar?
Please inquire for special requests and announcements. Expedition leaves May 15th, 2017
I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be working with Harvard University and the Planetary Health Alliance in Madagascar to both document and teach. Field research topics will include-
