Our Own Odyssey : Ben Hancock

From Nights, 7:11 pm on 12 May 2015

Ben Hancock in Panama

Wairarapa PhD student Ben Hancock spent ten months in Panama, mostly on Barro Colorado Island, which sits inside a man-made lake halfway along the Panama Canal.

He spent most of the time on a Smithsonian Institute facility studying birds, including toucans. But he also got to see a lot of ships pass in the night, and during the day too.
