The white squirrel gallery: a recently discovered species in danger

ESI assessed for the first time a recently discovered species of squirrel (white squirrel or called locally “putting bising”) but not yet formally described. This squirrel is only known from one small island in the Philippines and it is in danger from over-hunting and habitat destruction. The white squirrel was already known by the locals but brought to the rest of the world just few months ago. As soon as possible, ESI visited the island where the white squirrel is found and evaluated the habitat conditions and status of this unique species. Conservation actions are urgently needed!
