2013 IRES farewell

After 9 weeks in the NT, Kathryn and I dropped off all of the students at the Darwin airport on Sunday, completing the field component of the IRES program. Kathryn and I will remain at Coomalie to wrap things up in August, while the students scatter for short excursions within Australia and back home. Payton headed to Cairns to dive the Great Barrier Reef, Erik stuck around in Darwin to fit in some more NT experiences, Greg headed to Sydney for some birding and sightseeing, Kat and Xander headed back with a long layover in Sydney (with time to get in to see the Opera House and take a ferry ride), and Vera was off to Melbourne to visit relatives. We’ll all reconnect in the fall over webinar meetings as we analyze and write up the data collected during the field season.
