Papua New Guinea shares an island with Indonesia's Papua and West Papua Provinces. This region is the site of astounding biological diversity and has been the subject of multiple Rapid Assessment expeditions.
The Muller Range is one of the last great 'biological unknowns' of PNG and was identified by RAP's Gap Modelling as a region lacking basic biological documentation. The RAP survey has helped to fill a major gap in knowledge.
These mountains contain some of the deepest and most spectacular cave systems in the world and have been nominated for World Heritage Site status. However, the region’s biological riches remain poorly documented.
After this expedition, all participants were in agreement that the Kaijende Highlands is an area of spectacular topography and scenic beauty.
