Purple crab mania!

The recently published revision of Insulamon from Palawan by Dr Hendrik Freitag in the Raffles Bulletin of Zoology has been garnering quite a fair bit of attention in popular media and the news! Insulamon is endemic to Greater Palawan and the entire region was declared a UNESCO Biosphere in 1991.

We are very happy that the discovery has moved beyond the scientific communication phase and has gone viral! After all, conservation starts with knowing what is out there, and the more people learn about these beautiful crabs from Palawan, the better their chances of surviving development projects that may threaten their habitats. 

Here is a selection of articles from new agencies and blogs that have picked up the story.

and many more!
