Life+ CAP DOM equip five Agami Herons with Argos transmitters

Launched by GEPOG in 2011, the "Heron project" of Life+ Cap DOM has the aim of studying the movements of eight Agami Herons with Argos transmitters fitted to them. Three birds were fitted with the transmitters in 2012, and one of them was tracked between April and November, notably during a movement extending across French Guiana, Suriname, Guyana and Venezuela!

In 2013, five new individuals were fitted with transmitters at the end of April, in the Marais de Kaw-Roura Nature Reserve, and we eagerly await news of their movements.
