The search for lost species

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]This week Monaco Explorations hosted scientists Raquel Vasconcelos from Universidade do Porto and Aurélien Miralles from Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle who examined Scinque Géant specimens brought to Monaco from the island of Branco in the Cap Verde archipelago in the early 1900’s by Prince Albert the 1st. This lizard species is said to be extinct but there may be evidence that they still exist. On our first mission to Macaronesia we hope to be able to find a live Scinque Géant.
