Satellite Tagging: “REM” was carefully tagged with the latest in satellite tag technology providing us with one of the first opportunities to follow the long term movements of these threatened species. Please keep checking back frequently to follow REM’s movements, which will be updated every few days as his satellite tag continues to send us real-time tracking data.
