Mafinga Survey

We initiated a month-long survey of little-known "Priority KBA" Mafinga Highlands in Zambia's far northeast, under CEPF/BirdWatch Zambia umbrella, discovering Nchisi Pygmy Chameleon, Spotted Reed Frog, Long-haired Rousette, Blue Swallow, and more. Further study and conservation works are intended.

Every ecologist's dream is to stumbling upon a 'new species'. 

I couldn't believe my eyes when first noticing tadpoles in thin seepage films on Mutinondo's majestic granite outcrops, now known as Mutinondo Grass Frog, Ptychadena mutinondoensis, Channing & Willems 2018.
