After a long flight from Zurich (Switzerland), I finally arrived in Panama. For three weeks, I will stay in the village of Gamboa, closeby the Panama Canal and surrounded by the jungle. This is the place where I will come several times for my PhD fieldwork on Molossus molossus. Numerous colonies of the species can be found troughout the village. Furthermore, numerous facilities (housing...) are available through the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute. Here are a few pictures for you to discover this great place. I will keep you posted about my naturalistic observations !
