The Team Work With Local Guides to Cut Transects Through the Forest for their Research

A transect is essentially a straight line which researchers can walk down with ease and use different methods to collect data about the different species present in the area. The terrain here is very hilly, and has made this process extremely difficult, with the extra obstacles of steep banks formed by streams flowing down to the Mohot. Today should be our last days of transect cutting, which means the research can begin in earnest.

We have 5 transects so far, named after some of our sponsors:
  • The Tenison Transect
  • The Barnes Transect
  • The Cody Transect
  • The Hay Transect
  • The Butler Transect
Many thanks to those who sponsored these transects. We will let you know what we find on them once the research begins!
