The Fish and Forest Team recently returned from Tanzania investigating the habitats of the endemic Alcolapia of Lake Natron, an undescribed Ctenochromis species in the foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro, and Lake Chala, the home of Oreochromis hunteri. They collected specimens, DNA samples, aerial and underwater photos and ground truth data to compare with historical photographs and satellite images.

First publication "Environmental and Anthropogenic Pressures on Wild Populations of Endemic Cichlids in Northern Tanzania” was recently submitted to PLOS One.
