The article mentions Ebird app, which I have used. I just do my backyard feeder watching, but the app is very good and is connected with Cornell University in the US. Any birder can use the app and can submit their bird watching lists through the app directly to the university. Ebird is used world wide and the information collected is shared with other bird conservation agencies world wide.

I'm getting message "server can't be found". Is that due to country that I'm trying to access it from?

How about this link?

Maybe ... I'm able to access it from the USA with no issues.

The original link from lordmangrove now works for me:dunno:
Might have had an issue with the facebook clunkage at the end. In the future you can delete that off the link as a troubleshooting measure (the ?fbclid and everything after).

So the only known place this eel existed was the well the only 5 specimens were taken from, and killed :(
That’s exactly what I thought. I had hoped that I just misunderstood the article.
