Hunt for lost species…


The very first Search for Lost Species expedition got underway recently with a quest to northern Myanmar to find the pink-headed duck, missing since 1949.

Intrepid British explorer Richard Thorns, who has dedicated his life to looking for the species for the last 20 years, will lead a team into Kachin State, where he hopes wetland conditions will be just right to reveal the elusive bird if it is not extinct.
