At this time of year I start thinking about all the mammals I’d like to see in the next year and I guess others are doing the same. I thought it might be helpful if we shared some of our plans in case people want to travel together or simply coordinate. I also think its also good to know who is going where because, at the very least, it can help inspire other travel.
My plans are pretty vague so far for this year. But if all goes to plan then I hope to go to Nicaragua in late Feb to catch bats for a weekend, try to visit Quebec City to try for Fishers in March, look for Solenodons in the Dominican Republic in April. I will be taking a Bat Conservation International workshop in the Chiricahua Mountains in early June.
Further afield I want to go to Brazil (mainly to see Giant Armadillo) at some point – maybe August and hope to visit Tibet and Sichuan towards the end of the year.
What are other people thinking of doing?
