We are delighted to secure a sponsored master’s place for Kevin Carlo Artiaga. He began his course in October at the University of the Philippines, Diliman. Carlo is currently working through the taught part of the course, but he will begin fieldwork on the Philippine Duck in 2015.
Carlo is an avid bird watcher. After finishing his undergraduate degree, Carlo worked as a research assistant at the Haribon Foundation, a local NGO in the Philippines. As part of his role, he gained experience in survey work of rare and threatened species.
It’s wonderful news to have Carlo working on the project.
