Have you followed all the exciting research by our hardworking fellows? Keep an eye out for updates from their field sites in our soon-to-be-released annual report. SMACON fellows are selected from a pool of students who attended a week-long hands-on field skills workshop. The first of these annual workshops was organized in March 2019. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions prevented us from holding subsequent workshops in 2020/2021. Fellows are supported on mini-grants thanks to our generous donors.
