    About This Project

    Given its size, it’s hard to believe that the Namdapha Flying Squirrel is only known with from a single individual collected in Namdapha National Park (NNP), India, in 1981. Our team will go back to NNP with the aim of rediscovering and protecting this Critically Endangered species. We will use spotlighting, arboreal camera bait stations, tree-hole scoping, and fur trapping to search for the species and identify conservation measures to save it.

    Blast off!
