Weekly Report for August 21st to the 25th.

Down here on the Lake everything is looking up! We are heading towards September so that means the seasonal warming of the Lake is in full swing, no wetsuits required!  Our new population and biodiversity survey sites in Nkhata Bay are going well. You will see results from them next week, and we've also got some new faces arriving soon.  Cecilia from Spain with be interning with us.  Joao from Portugal is coming out to give us a hand for awhile and Easha from the UK will be coming out as a Research Assistant to help us, amongst other things, to develop the environmental education program at our new branch station in Nkhata Bay.  Take a look at this week's report to see how things are changing in the Bay.  As this is our first year of data collection in this area it is really exciting to be recording baseline data that has NEVER been collected before.  There is so much to learn out here!
