So every year it’s interesting to hear what people are after for the next year to come… But also I was wondering what everybody’s biggest miss was for 2016.
For me it was clearly the Caracal, which has eluded me for 3 years now in Israel, and I flew all the way to S. Africa to see it (well along with many other things), and it STILL eluded me! I must be cursed.. 😛
On the other hand, I had my most mammal-full trip yet, with 75 native species seen and like 5-6 more introduced species.
My targets for this coming year are definitely the lowland gorillas, bongos, and with some help from above, one-two species of pangolin (White-bellied is more common, but the black-bellied one they raised at Sangha Lodge has not had any human interaction for about a year now according to Rod, but they still track him daily(?) for research)
Actually, pangolin alone would be incredible, but anyway, I’m really excited for the CAR.
What’s everybody’s greatest miss of 2016, and biggest target for 2017?
Happy Holidays everyone, and thanks Jon, as always, for keeping this community alive and relevant.
