Today I am going to be washing and scrubbing my wellies, then dipping them in 10% bleach solution, before finally giving them a thorough rinse in clean water. This is necessary to make sure there are no traces of Chytrid Fungus or Ranavirus, which are particularly damaging to amphibians in Central America. It is also present in Europe, but they don’t have it in Manu National Park, and British Exploring are very keen that we don’t change that.
