Venue: Gorongosa National Park is an amazingly diverse place which you have likely followed via Piotr Naskrecki. Here is a description of the diversity on the Gorongosa website: The true diversity of Gorongosa’s micro world is still a mystery, and the exact numbers of species of insects, spiders, or frogs living in the Park are unknown. But each day brings new discoveries: recently, scientists have confirmed that at least 200 species of ants live in Gorongosa, and some of these can be found nowhere else in the world. The diversity of grasshoppers, praying mantids, beetles, and frogs are similarly rich. It’s possible that the diverse ecosystems of Gorongosa National Park are home to at least 50,000 species of insects and other small animals.
