I'm also interested in this programm because we are working on fire salamanders in North East of France. We would like to have contact to you if you want to exchange about fire salamanders.
We are working with transponders. 460 animals have been followed for two years. Some animals have been found far away from the last point of capture (1000 m) and we have not finished !
Hope to hear from you.
: Could anybody here be kind enough to let us know how this turned out? Thank you, Wes
