Mt. Lico photos (Feb17, Nov17, May18)

June 18:  Safely back from the expedition to Mt Lico – a great success.  We managed to climb to the forest on top thanks to an expert climbing team.  In total 28 people surveyed two sites.  Hopefully several new species to science which will add to the evidence base to protect these sites and create a new montane ecoregion in this part of Africa – thats the overall plan.  First impressions below:

  1. Hi Julian,
    I will be attending ‘Dangers and discoveries’ talk at Oxford university museum of NH on Thursday and was wondering if you will be free to talk after the presentation?
    I believe we have a mutual friend in Simon Pearson with whom I go travelling once a year and I’d like to discuss the possibilities of an adventure in Mozambique.
