by: Augustine

Great website! I plan to visit the Gardens in June for research purposes and for information on the Cameroon Dragonfly Project (CDP) undertaken some time back by Graham Vick and Otto Mesumbe. Incidentally I,ve tried to get in touch with Mr Mesumbe who was part of the CDP to no avail. Can you help me with his contacts please?

My e-mail address: Aniba@wsu.ac.za

See you soon!

Augustine
