Following our very successful – 79 species – Amazon trip in 2017, we are in the very early stages of planning a new Amazonian mammal voyage for October 2019. This time we will be exploring the remote Rio Aripuana in search of a different set of mammals including the newly described Dwarf Marmoset and the enigmatic Dwarf Manatee, known only from a single creek in the Amazon Basin! The animal resembles the Amazonian Manatee genetically, yet is much much smaller and has a different diet.
Other species we hope to encounter include Manicore Marmoset, Common Woolly Monkey and Prince Bernhard’s Titi Monkey along with some exciting bats, rodents, dolphins and many of the commoner Amazonian species. Plus who knows what else!
More details coming soon but if you are interested please let me know. This should be one exciting trip, right on the frontier of mammal watching, and space will be limited to fewer than 15 people.
