TIMOR-LESTE REPTILE & AMPHIBIAN SURVEY
PHASE IV: A DILI DAY

On the 3rd Hinrich received a phone call to say the Foreign Minister would like to meet us and learn about the the Timor-Leste Reptile and Amphibian Survey. On the morning of the 4th the meeting was confirmed so we drove the Minstry of Foreign Affairs and met up with our friend Claudia Abate, Special Advisor to the Prime Minister. Claudia took us through Security and after a short wait His Exellency Zacarias da Costa came into the room and spent a half-hour listening to our aims, objectives and results, and asked pertinant questions.
