The Nubian flapshell turtle Cyclanorbis elegans is categorized as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List (2021) and is one of the five most threatened chelonians. This species, which was previously presumed extinct, was rediscovered in 2017 along the White Nile in South Sudan, where for the last 4 years we have been studying its distribution, population size and conservation status, and potential threats (Luiselli et al., 2021, Oryx, 55, 490).
