ANC Alum Discovering New Species


Trond Larsen (class of ‘94) is the director of the Conservation International Rapid Assessment Program. For three weeks in 2010, he was part of a team surveying a region in southwestern Suriname. During their expedition, the team discovered dozens of new species, including fish, a frog, katydids, damselflies, water beetles and scarab beetles.

In a recent interview with Fox News, Trond describes the expedition and a variety of amazing and previously unknown creatures, such as the Bullet Ant, whose apt name he experienced first hand, and his favorite: an unusual horned female Dung Beetle.
