Malta and Italy Office Contacts
Mediterranean Office Manager: Nathan Adams
Nathan joined his first Operation Wallacea expedition to Indonesia as a Research Assistant in 2011. Since then, he has returned to the Indonesia site on several occasions as a bat scientist. He is currently co-authoring scientific papers focused on the lowland rainforest bat communities of Buton Island. His undergraduate thesis focused on a novel approach towards the identification of illegal water abstraction of Maltese groundwater. He is presently reading for his Masters degree in Environmental Science as a Rotarian Scholar at the University of Toronto. Passionate about his job, Nathan aims to motivate young Maltese scientists to join Operation Wallacea expeditions because they provide students with the life-changing opportunity to apply their school/university course material at biological hotspots across the world.
