“Lost” Antpitta Rediscovered
After a 60-year absence, the secretive Táchira Antpitta has been rediscovered in Venezuela. Until now, four specimens from the 1950s provided scant information about the species. Continued deforestation and human conflict in its home range mean that time is of the essence to save this critically endangered species. Read about the exciting rediscovery.
