Dr. Randy Kyes Marks 20 Years of Field Training in Langtang National Park, Nepal

Randy Kyes @RCKGLOBAL Just down from the Himalayas – Langtang National Park. Seems like I’ve taken a million photos during 20+ yrs of research and training in the park – but every time I see it, it’s like my first time… Thank you to Dr. Narayan Koju of NEC and the amazing students who joined us.

Training kicked off in March at Nepal Engineering College in Kathmandu with a total of 41 participants representing 10 different academic institutions throughout Nepal.

Additionally, the team was able to provide educational outreach regarding conservation biology and global health to fourth and fifth graders at the Shee Janasudhar Basic School in Swoyambhu, Kathmandu. The next stop for Kyes was Tangkoko Nature Reserve in North Sulawesi, Indonesia, for the 23rd annual field course starting back up after a four year pandemic delay.

Thank you to the school’s teachers and all our field course participants.


One week into our 23rd “annual” field course in Tangkoko, Indonesia with an impressive group of 21 students from UNSRAT, UDK, and Batu Putih – great to be back (photo via drone). Will be conducting our annual outreach education program for local school children in a few days.
