The pupils of the school of Roura, in French Guiana, on the track of the Agami Heron !

After having learnt about Agami Herons, thanks to a class given by Anna Stier, the GEPOG Project Leader, the CP/CE1 pupils from the eco-school of Roura have given names to three of the five herons that were fitted with Argos transmitters in the Kawi marshes in April 2013.
