No further data have been received from Kasper's tag, however we have not given up hope. The last, partial, signal we received from him (11th April) showed a low charge on his tag. It is possible that, like Lyster before him, he is spending some time in Algeria foraging for food before attempting the Mediterranean crossing. His solar-powered tag would therefore not charge up if he is in the undergrowth. We hope that once he has moved on, and his tag has had a chance to charge, we will see Kasper pop up soon.
During the last week or so Carlton II has begun to move east, first to just over the border and into Niger and then a little further into Niger. He is currently in the Dagida Game Reserve, 30km (19 miles) from the border with Benin.
