Team Arrives in Cameroon

by Mike Loomis
March 18, 2003


The flight went smoothly, and all of our equipment arrived intact in Cameroon. The satellite tracking collars arrived on the same flight, and we were able to pick them up from Customs this morning. We spent this morning at the opening session of a three-day workshop to develop a management plan for Cameroon's great apes, drills, and mandrills. The workshop looks very interesting but, since we head to the field tomorrow, we couldn't stay. We spent the afternoon checking and re-packing equipment; we leave for Yokadouma early tomorrow morning.
