The Primate and Predator Project has wheels! This week we got a quad bike. As our current camera trapping grid covers 60 square kilometres, the quad bike will be extremely useful for checking camera traps which are too far to walk out to.
Yesterday Sam, Marine and I had a test drive around camp. It’s quite fun and zippy. There is a very steep road with lots of rocks on it called Spike Road on the western side of the mountain range. It’s going to be interesting to see how the quad copes with it.
For our parents who read this blog…we have helmets to wear so have no fear.
