tracking jungle leeches in Madagascar and the Seychelles


Our Itinerary has Changed!
  Due to the political crisis
in Madagascar we were unable
to arrive on time. As well,
rains have made roads to
Midongy du Sud nearly
impassable.
  The new plan is:
February 21Fly to Ft. Dauphin (Tolagnaro), and
collect in newly designated private protected area.
February 22-25Collect in Reserve Privee de Berenty
and vicinity of P. N. Adohahela
Our schedule is undetermined for this stage as
our flights from Ft. Dauphin remain undertermined.
Also it depends in part on Air France's willingness to allow
Evon to extend her stay to the 14th. If so, our hope is to
collect in Perinet as well.
March 14arrive in Victoria (Mahe), Seychelles
March 15 Helicopter out to Silhouette
March 16-18 collecting on Silhouette
March 18-20 collecting on Mahe
March 22 back in New York
