The speaker for this month is Jordan Donini.
He is a recently graduated biologist (B.S. in Biology) from Florida Gulf Coast
University, concentrating predominantly on reptiles and amphibians. He works
with Emydid and Kinosternid turtles, as well as gopher tortoises and green
treefrogs during my time at FGCU. He traveled to Ghana, West Africa in October
2011 - January 2012 to work with the Christian Conservation Organization, A
Rocha Ghana, promoting environmental awareness and education, along with
helping to initiate a population study on Crocodylus suchus (formerly C.
niloticus) in a man made dam/Eco-tourism site.
During his talk he will explore the diversity of herptofauna that he encountered through pictures. He will also touch on the interactions and attitudes of the people of Ghana that he met in regards to their reptilian co-inhabitants!
