UK team on hunt for new species in Nigeria

2 posts in this topic

A Chester Zoo team is set to visit a remote, mountainous region in Nigeria to assess what species live in an area where few surveys have been conducted.

They will carry out the first biodiversity assessment in the Gashaka Gumti National Park.

The area is said to be home to the last viable population of the endangered Nigeria-Cameroon chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes ellioti).

A 12-strong team from the zoo includes security and maintenance staff.

I don't see why they are looking around Africa for a new species. All they have to do is look around Chester.
