After a number of great trips with the EAG I got to know Donald (the field excursion leader) as a friend. But as happens sometimes, Donald has moved on to other opportunities. The new field excursion leader is a bright young microbiology PhD graduate named Karron James. Today I went out to York Island with Karron, along with another EAG board of directors member named Ashton Williams, and the field technicians Shawn and Tahambay who are always an integral part of the excursions onto the islands. The purpose of this excursion was to bait and monitor traps to keep rats off the island in order to protect the ecology of the island.
