Boris Update

Its been just over a month since we released 4 year old male Boris back to the wild and we are pleased to say that he is doing extremely well. His Sirtrack collar has sent a GPS point every morning around 6:00am and these points are shown in the picture below. His movements since the release show that for now he  prefers an area at the base of a mountain range located just inside the Namib Naukluft Park, we believe the points showing him in the plains towards the river are the times when he is hunting. The fact he is settled in this area must mean he is having successful hunts and does not feel threatened by any other carnivores that may be in the same area. For his first month of release we couldn't have wished for a better start, we will continue to monitor him and hope his success continues!
