Outcomes of the biodiversity survey on our second expedition to Southwest Ethiopia are published in the fifth Biodiversity Express Survey report. The Sheka forest is a UNESCO biosphere reserve and is one of the largest remaining forest fragments in the country. Sheka forest reserve hosts a wide range of habitats from highland bamboo moorland to lowland riverine forest, and little is known on what species can be found here. We therefore surveyed amphibian, mammal and bird diversity along with opportunistic observations of reptiles, butterflies and epiphytic orchids. Additional information will be added to this report as it becomes available.
