New Capeverdian Zoological Society

We were very pleased to hear about a new society that has just been started - Sociedade Caboverdiana de Zoologia

Founder Cornelis J. Hazevoet says "The aim of the organisation is to promote zoological research in Cape Verde. One of the means through which this is aimed to achieve is the publication of a scientific, peer-reviewed journal - Zoologia

SOS will be participating in this great initiative by submitting an article for the next edition, due in October 2010.
