We just got back to camp after some intense field work to find that the WildCam images are 28% complete! That makes us so happy to have an extended team around the world working with us. We will be posting nuggets from our field diaries over the next few weeks, so stay tuned.
Here’s one from September 13th:
We were setting up trail cameras along the Urema river today, deep in a remote part of the park when we noticed that we had some curious onlookers. This herd of buffalo seemed to wonder what we were doing with these funny looking cameras on their trees. These buffalo may be from one of the groups that were relocated to Gorongosa to help boost the buffalo population that was almost wiped out during the war. 85 buffalo were relocated from other parks between 2006 and 2009 and their population is on the rise. We hope you find some of these beautiful creatures in the WildCam photos!
