The Expedition

The expedition has been carried out between the 2nd and the 28th of February 2017. The project, partly funded by CEPF, is part of the on-going collaboration between the Science Museum of Trento and Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) DR Congo Programme. The main aim was to collect scientific and visual information on Kabobo massif. To target areas geographically distant from those previously surveyed and cover places never before sampled, in particular to investigate reptiles and amphibians and collect the genetic material needed to contribute to the assessment of the actual herpetological diversity.
