What Has Arrived at Channel Islands National Park?

 Radio collars!

Five new radio collars
still in the wrapper
Six refurbished radio collars
all rebuilt and ready to go back on island foxes!
...have arrived at Channel Islands National Park. These radio-telemetry collars will be fitted on island foxes in the next few months as biological technicians count island foxes and check their health.

Your donations funded these radio collars!

Look closely, this island fox is wearing a radio collar
Foxes with worn collars will be giving them up for refurbishing or new batteries. You have funded fourteen more of these collars to go from the field to the workshop for refitting. More on Refurbished Radio Collars

Radio collars offer a frontline of defense for monitoring and protecting island foxes.
