Continuing our ‘In search of secret wildlife’ series, following our blogpost on lost fishes, Nina Seale tells the story of a search to find one of Earth’s rarest large mammals, and how conservation can take action to bring individual species back from the brink of extinction.

In our previous blogpost, we explored our partner Shoal’s search for the lost fishes, a campaign to find the world’s top 10 ‘most wanted’ fishes.

However, Shoal is not our only partner looking to reclaim elusive species from assumed extinction.
