Scientists discover new species of giant elephant-shrew
Date:1/31/2008

Phillips Congo shrew, a monkey known as the kipunji, and several amphibians and reptiles. This new discovery highlights how exceptionally important the Udzungwa Mountain rain forests are, and how little we know about them, said Rovero.

The newly discovered grey-faced sengi is just one of many species in need of protection in the Udzungwa Mountains, which serve as an important dry-season refuge for many animals from adjacent areas. A recent survey suggests that the few remaining wildlife corridors linking the mountains to surrounding protected areas are critically threatened, and will be lost by the end of 2009 without intervention. Recent conservation efforts have resulted in the establishment of the Kilombero Nature Reserve, raising hopes for enhanced long-term protection of some important forests, including Ndundulu where the new sengi was found. Still, without more funding, the legal protection afforded by the reserve will be difficult to enforce. We hope that new discoveries like ours will help bolster efforts to conserve this spectacular ecosystem, says Rathbun.
