Alex Petchey

Alex and Lemur Frog GM copyAlex Petchey was a Manchester-based Masters student funded by Project Lemur Frog. His research into the DNA of the species has helped identify micro-satellite markers to aid the development of the first stud book for the species. Fully funded by Project Lemur Frog he conducted fieldwork in Costa Rica and Panama, visiting the CRARC to collect samples so that genetic variation could also be assessed.
