Scientist and PhD candidate Mai Fahmy works to protect endangered animals in tropical rainforests. To do this, she collects and studies blood-sucking leeches! What can leeches tell us about the incredible diversity of wildlife in Madagascar’s “Lost Forest”? Through this Virtual Field Trip, Mai is joining (virtually) an elementary school in California to share her work and inspire the next generation of field scientists, conservationists and explorers.
