Ten fantastic students have finally been selected to participate in our Internship Research Program (IRP) this upcoming summer! The selected researchers will be working on their own research as proposed to Harimau Co under the guidance of assisting professor and the local community leaders. Two of our students are returning to continue work they begun in 2018 and to become part of our leadership team.
The proposals range from soil characterization in relation to the Titan Arum, the largest flower species in the world; agro-ecological practice evaluations, ant populations as indicator of forest disturbance; water quality analysis and impacts on the community; implementation of safe caving practices for eco-tourism; species identification and echolocation analysis of cave-dwelling swiftlets; feral animals in the community; medicinal plant identification; community gardens and relationships between community and forest.
We are looking for support to cover the students’ expenses while on the IRP. Please see attached letter for more information and feel free to support these brave students and their amazing projects!
