As the calendar year comes to a close, we can summarize that another successful year of the program has passed.
One of the highlights, as reported by Conservation Project Coordinator, Ariel Kedem, has been the fact that we have seen this past year, female deers who were released in 2014 with new baby fawns.
This is evidence of both their ongoing health and the success of the release to the wild program.
We are looking forward to the next release of approximately nine deer from the Zoo's breeding core at the end of February.
We are waiting for the GPS collars of the last batch deers released to fall off (when the batteries run out) and be collected and re-programmed for the new releases.
