- I’ll be in Auckland, NZ for a week in late October. Any tips on wildlife spots within 2 hrs drive from the city? Birds, bats, herps, inverts – everything. Also, any local contacts will be appreciated.
- In late June-early July 2018 I’ll be guiding a 2-week trip to Yakutia. The main goal will be to put GPS trackers on nesting Ross’s gulls; we’ll also see Siberian cranes, black capercaillies, Siberian grouse and other cool birds. As for mammals, the two locations we’ll be visiting (one in the tundra, one in boreal forest) are very remote and should have lots of stuff, but nobody knows what exactly. There might also be a side trip to Pleistocene Park. If anybody’s interested, please let me know. The cost is still being worked on, but should be relatively low for such an expedition.Vladimir Dinets
