If you have looked for mammals in Nicaragua you may have met Arnulfo Medina-Fitoria, one of Nicaragua’s foremost mammalogists and a true pioneer in Central America. Even if you didn’t meet him you would have benefitted from his work if you have looked for mammals there. I am very sad to report that Arnulfo died very suddenly on friday: a reminder that COVID is still far from over. José Gabriel Martínez has worked extensively with Arnulfo and is raising money to help his wife and son. https://gofund.me/b54fc8
