Ryder remains in Morocco25 Jul 2013
Further transmissions at lunchtime on 20 July show that Ryder did not continue to make his desert crossing. Instead he headed north and by the 21 July he was in the Tazekka National Park, 73km (45 miles) to the east of Fes, in northern Morocco. The park protects areas of cedar groves and forests of cork and holm oak and is in the Middle Atlas range of the Atlas Mountain Range. It is likely he returned here to find some feeding opportunities before crossing the Sahara desert.
