New Trip Reports from Patagonia & Coastal Argentina, and RIP Arnulfo Medina-Fitoria

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.

And here are two excellent new trip reports from Rob Jansen as he continues his South American odyssey.

Patagonia, 2021: Rob Jansen, 1 month & 10 species including Puma, Magellanic Tuco Tuco and Wolffsohn’s Viscacha.

Coastal Argentina, 2022: Rob Jansen, 5 weeks & 17 species including Large Hairy Armadillo and Franciscana.
