Newsletter Regional Correspondents

At the Palaeontological Association, we have Regional Correspondents, who cover the entire globe, to inform us on particular social, economic, political and other challenges that students and researchers in their region might be facing and that might affect their studies, scientific work and contributions. The ultimate aim of this action is for us to stay updated, particularly as western media can be selective in their coverage. Our current regional correspondents are as follows:
