Aly is Found!

Andy Hearn and Jo Ross report some good news from Borneo's Danum Valley. After many months of not receiving a signal, the team has once again located Aly, the first-ever radio-collared Bornean clouded leopard. To track her down, Andy and Jo hired a helicopter to better search for signals over the rough terrain and forest cover of Danum. Aly was found 3km from the edge of her previous range. This positive development has a downside - the signal was very weak, suggesting that the collar's batteries are running low. Hopefully the collar will transmit long enough to gain more valuable data on Aly's movements.
