Sichuan Safari!

It's amazing how little China is visited for wildlife and megafauna. Having lived here for three years, I have been blown away with the wealth of biodiversity this country has. There is little doubt that China ranks up with the big-boys for wildlife viewing opportunities. While it is a challenge to get to the remote areas, it is well worth the effort. Check out this trip report from an extended weekend I took last week - 2.5 field days ONLY! Seriously cool stuff.

 

Cheers,

Amazing array of critters. That Ibisbill is an unusual looking bird.

Yes - thanks! What I love about China's wildlife is how unique and diverse it is. ONe needs to work a LOT harder here to see stuff but when you do, it really is impressive. I love the ibisbills.

Here is a wonderful documentary on the black snub-nosed monkey from Yunnan. This close cousin of the golden snub-nosed monkey photographed by @@Nature Traveler, is the primate species that lives the higher on earth, according to the video.

 

Coke has actually been to Baima National Park and seen this famous and unique creature!
