project review

I really wish I had come to Cambodia for longer than a week! The arrival in Cambodia was very smooth, relaxed, and I experienced no problems! During the week the survey techniques I enjoyed the most were those conducted on the beach. Before I experienced life on the project I was nervous about how it would be but I didn’t find anything too difficult to adapt to and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.



For me the best aspects of the project were snorkelling on the reef and recognising fish I had learnt. I’ve really loved and enjoyed my week at Koh Smach – although it was only a short stay! I would definitely urge anyone considering this or this kind of trip to go for it! The staff are awesome, friendly and helpful. The sleeping & eating arrangements went above and beyond what I expected. I’m leaving with a greater knowledge scientifically and of what I myself can cope with. Thanks to Jack, Laura, Shaun , Toy & Frontier for the great opportunity! I’m leaving Koh Smach with a greater knowledge of the science and need for conservation.
