The silver-backed chevrotain, also called the Vietnamese mouse-deer, was last recorded more than 25 years ago and is the first mammal rediscovered on Global Wildlife Conservation’s list of top 25 most wanted in their Search for Lost Species. This is one of a number of fascinating species that live in the diverse tropical forests of Southeast Asia.
In November 2019 Global Wildlife Conservation rediscovered a wildlife species called the Silver-backed Chevrotain – a species the size of a rabbit, has a silver sheen, and has been hanging on in a region of Vietnam that is sadly ravaged by poaching snares. Scientists know almost nothing about the species’ general ecology or conservation status, making it one of the highest mammal conservation priorities in the Greater Annamites.
