Catharina attends Indo-Pacific Amphibian Symposium in Borneo

Catharina recently went to Sarawak in Borneo and attended the Indo-Pacific Amphibian Symposium held at Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS). The symposium comprised numerous presentations on ecology and conservation of amphibians in the region. Catharina also attended the annual Borneo Frog Race (also organised by UNIMAS) at the Gunung Gading National Park. This is a public outreach event aimed at creating awareness of and enthusiasm for amphibians among the public. The day was filled with workshops and the race itself, which is a race by the participants (not a race by the frogs themselves), in which each participant aims to find and photograph as many frog species as possible in a fixed amount of time.
