One of the optional side quests within Monster Hunter World Iceborne is the Research Requests. This requires you to take photos of different Palico moggies doing all sorts of different things, one of which is ordering a group of their own.
Each quest comes with its own requirements and there are 20 in total, some of which are locked out until you perform certain requirements.
In order to activate this you need to firstly speak to the Lyrian Researcher in Seliana, he will tell you about the research and will also give you a Surveyor Set, which is used to take photos of the moggies doing whatever it is they do.
Once you think you have a good enough photo you will need to return to the Researcher in order to hand it in he can be a pain at times, I now like to call him ‘Awkward Blighter’ as he has some serious issues with perfection. You will probably learn of this too if you intend to go for the Gold Rewards.
Gold Rewards however are not mandatory and you can simply pass with a mere Bronze if you so wish to. However, my guides are focused on getting that perfect shot and claiming the all mighty Gold.

Area 17 or near that in the Ancient Forest should house some of the little furballs. You will need to climb up a tree in order to reach them, these guys are always sniffing about. They should also be marked on your map.
