New Trip Report: West Papua 2023
Here’s a report of the trip Nils Bouillard, Charles Foley, Venkat Sankar, Juliana Senawi, Ian Thompson and I took last month with Carlos Bocos at the helm.
A bit of a mega trip, with 60 species in just over two weeks including Grizzled and Vogelkop’s Tree Kangaroos, Western Long-beaked Echidna, Long-fingered Triok, Feathertailed Possum, four ringtail possum species, four cuscus species, New Guinea Jumping Mouse and a whole lot more. I am pretty sure this trip gave me more lifers than any trip I’ve ever taken in 30 years. West Papua is full of spectacular mammalwatching and ‘unforgettable’ food….
If anyone has any thoughts on any of our species IDs – we remain puzzled about some species – then please let me know.
