Balancing Work and Photography as a Field Researcher

During my one month as an intern at the Crocodile Research Coalition in Belize, I did not take one photo of a crocodile. My group spent most of our nights conducting surveys, searching for the two species of crocodiles present in the Placencia Lagoon to research their populations. We would take a small boat out into the lagoon and use flashlights to spot eyeshine – a bright spot of reddish light bouncing back from the eyes of crocodiles.
