Away from it all…
The past few days have been stressful for the Freeland conservation teams in Thailand. One group just got back from a week in the field in the south of Thailand. Getting there the week before was “a breeze”, but after being in the forest without communications, it was a bit of a shock to find how much the world had fallen apart while they were deep in the forest without phones or internet.
Their journey home meant a thorough interrogation along the way, as the highway passed through different provinces. Questions and temperature checks led to quite a time at each check point. After a whole day the team arrived home and are now self-quarantining just in case.
Meanwhile….gaur in trouble
Another Freeland team were pulled in to assist in the rescue of a gaur, the world’s large bovine, and occasional tiger prey, which had got so stuck in mud they needed a digger to get it out. See the video below.
