It’s hard to believe it has been 1 year since rescuing Kovu and Zira! They have come so far already!
Both Kovu and Zira are doing well. The Lilongwe Wildlife Centre are very busy with the preparation for their release, and hopefully they will now go out next month. This is slightly later than planned, which has to do with the fact there is so much what needs to be organized. But the team in Malawi are getting there! This week they are holding interviews with research assistants who can help with tracking them after being released. Radio-collars have been ordered, but the delivery time goes up to 6-8 weeks, so still waiting for them to come in. They have decided to give them GPS collars, which means they can track their movements all the time, and get really good data on their behavior.
