Banded mongoose tracking continues. Troop movements have been very diverse and intriguing. This is one of the driest and hottest seasons we have had for decades. Understanding how mongoose move and behave under extreme weather events will provide insight into the impacts of future climate change. Of interest is the manner in which human provisioning influences space use and intergroup contact.
