Episode Seven:

Never a Dhole Moment with Dr. Nucharin Songsasen

In this episode, we’re continuing to celebrate women in science by bringing you to Thailand’s Khao Yai National Park where Dr. Nucharin Songsasen is working with a team of scientists to monitor the behavior and health of an elusive and endangered species of wild dog—the dhole. Nucharin shares her experience as a female scientist from Thailand working in America and the challenges and opportunities she’s had throughout her impressive career. To learn more about Nucharin’s research, visit the project’s website: Tracking Asiatic Wild Dogs in Thailand. (The music in this trailer is “Partly Sage” by Blue Dot Sessions, provided under the Attribution-Noncommercial License.)


Earthwatch depends on donations—above and beyond what we raise from volunteers who participate on our expeditions—in order to deliver our global conservation mission. In fact, volunteer contributions provide only half of the total resources Earthwatch needs to sustain over 40 field research expeditions, a wide variety of educational programs, corporate sustainability trainings, and more each year.
