Hope springs eternal

Released deer exploring their new environment
Released deer exploring their new environment

As reported previously, we postponed our planned October/November release of Persian fallow deer because of unseasonably dry weather conditions. We’re so pleased to report that we released five deer into the wild at the Nahal Soreq nature reserve (an unfenced protected area near Jerusalem) at the beginning of February.

Two of the deer were fitted with trial GPS tracking collars which should be far more accurate and easier to use than radio telemetry tracking collars. The aim is to test how well these collars work before making a decision on further expenditure (they’re rather expensive!).

We look forward to letting you know in the next report how our deer are getting on.

Thank you for being a part of this project– we appreciate your generosity and support!

With warm wishes from -
