This final photo for December comes courtesy of Carmen James from Frontier's Costa Rica, Big Cats, Primates, and Turtles Conservation project. We love the idyllic scene of volunteers relaxing after a hard day of transcets and and data surveys!

Here is our weekly round up of all of our great Science Club articles. This week sees both good news and bad news with the re-introduction of locally extinct species and a worrying look at the dwindling African Lion numbers.
It's been a busy month for Madagascar with spottings of rare eagles and new research findings of lemur behaviour and reptile recovery. Tanzania has also had an exciting few weeks as new science projects have been put into development. All of the Frontier science project news is regularly added to the Society for Environmental Exploration (SEE) website.
Our Project of the Week is Costa Rica Primates, Big Cats and Turtle Conservation so we thought we’d take a look at this beautiful country and bring you all the best things to do, see and eat.
The weeks coming up to Christmas are filled with excitement and anticipation as we look forward to turkey, presents, brandy butter, booze and Christmas television. Another regular fixture which is eagerly awaited each year is the Big Fat Quiz of the Year. Whilst you will have to wait till 27th December for Channel 4’s official Christmas round up, here at frontier we’d like to get you into the game-show spirit.
Today on Into the Wild we are continuing our focus on Frontier projects by speaking to Alex Shields, past and future volunteer with Frontier. Alex travelled to Costa Rica last year to take part in our popular Big Cats, Primates and Turtles project, featured on the blog on Monday. Alex is currently planning a trip to Fiji next year, to volunteer on our Medical Project in Suva.
This week on Into the Wild we will be enlightening those interested on some of the important scientific research carried out on three of our main projects: Costa Rica, Fiji and Tanzania. Here at Frontier we pride ourselves for the high standard of survey work carried out in the field, and we thought this would be a great opportunity to let everyone know what we have recently discovered.
