November

The Gerry Martin Project is starting it’s first Research and conservation Field Station on a beautiful plot of forested land, located in the Sindhudurg district of Maharashtra, just a stone throw from the Tilari Dam. We are planning to start our surveys of wildlife and vegetation in November and in true TGMP fashion, we’re opening our doors to like-minded and interested folks. This gets us manpower and resources while you get the experience, learning and skill building opportunities and incredible photo ops!

This survey expedition will run from the 1st to the 5th of November 2013. You will need to be at Mapusa, Goa on the morning of the 1st and we will drop you back there in the early afternoon on the 5th.

We’d like to make it clear that this is a non-luxury trip. At the field site, we will be living off the land apart from basic food supplies and be staying in tents. We’ll prepare our own food and run the camp ourselves. Our only criteria is that you have a positive attitude, be healthy and share our passion for conservation and the outdoors.

There are limited spaces on the trip so contact gerry@gerrymartin.in to book your spot as soon as possible!
