Filming RACE

Two days of filming have just ended, they will be cut down to 5 minutes by the end of April. Kerala Productions brought over a small team to get explanations on RACE and Chytridiomycosis, focusing on our main sampling area - the Pyrenees. Pierre and Pauline made some nice shots, happily taking all moving amphibians on tape. They got explanations on the whole range of RACE work, starting from sampling , marking and swabbing individuals to the genetic methods and behavioural experiments. They also were part of the world premier - the implementation of ALPHA tags into Alytes tadpoles.

So, lets wait what is the end result. In any case, it was fun and two days did fly by quickly.

Looking forward seeing the result!
