Caribnature.org contains a series of video essays about nature, the environment and exploration in Haiti, based on fieldwork led by Blair Hedges at Penn State University. The video above gives details on a trip to a never before scientifically explored mountain range in southern Haiti where the Haitian giant twig anole, A. darlingtoni, was rediscovered 25 years after it was last seen. In addition, a number of new species of frogs were discovered. The mountain chain still contains forest and wildlife because it is far from roads and people, and thus has not been completely deforested. To get there, Hedge’s team were dropped off by a helicopter.
The website also contains links to other useful information about Haiti, as well as a beautiful poster of Haitian biodiversity, which can be requested.
