The goal of Herper of the Week is to highlight people from all walks of life who work with reptiles and amphibians and show their work to others. This week’s Herper of the Week is Marcel Talla Kouette. Marcell Talla Kouette is working on his Ph.D at the University of Florida. His research focuses on the caecilians of Cameroon.
Because of the lifestyle of caecilians, not much info is known about it’s natural history and conservation status. Marcel is working to learn more. He is even given an Edge of Existence Fellowship 2011 to survey for caecilians.
