Unusual Events at the TEAM Site: 

In the course of the extensive hiking done for sampling, especially that related to setting and retrieving the camera-traps, the field team recorded frequent signs of poaching and other illegal activities in the national park, including animal snared (especially duikers and other forest antelopes) and poachers' camps. They also encountered a camp used for mining. All signs were recorded and reported to the law enforcement unit of the national park for appropriate action.
