Follow the heron!

A reminder about an unique event: the fitting of three Agami Herons from the Marais de Kaw-Roura nature reserve (French Guiana) with Argos transmitters. Little is known about this bird, recently classified as ’Vulnerable’ (IUCN’s Red List) by BirdLife International. Since 2010, teams from GEPOG, under a Life+ Cap DOM project, have been trying to find out more about this mysterious species ... a real challenge considering the fact that this French Guianan colony (the largest in the world) is only accessible by helicopter!
