Victor in Ivory Coast
Victor is on his way
On 9 March we received a couple of locations that suggested that Victor was in Cameroon and just after 8am on 11 March we received a good quality location that proved this is the case. However, he isn’t in Cameroon, he is in eastern Ghana, close to the border with Ivory Coast. During the last few days he has flown almost 2,000km (1,250 miles). He is in fairly open forest close to the village of Broni. His map will update overnight.
Victor settled in the gallery forest
Victor is still in western CAR, moving around the gallery forest he has been in for the last five weeks. It will be interesting to see if he moves before the 9 March this year.
Victor hasn’t moved west yet
Victor is still settled in the gallery forest that he has been in for almost a month now. In 2017 he began his journey west on 9 March but he didn’t arrive at his current site until 14 February. It could be that we see him move west any day now.
