TEAM Udzungwa still have a problem of Deskteam program almost throughout the quarter, the program doesn’t functioning well. The problems reported were; disappearing of update icon, loading for too long during annotation and blocking of opening the Deskteam program. The new desktop computer was purchased to install the program, but still the program doesn’t functioning in the new computer, the issue seems like it need a proper Java for opening the program.

The picture data of 20 cameras for Array 3 are still in the camera traps, hasn’t downloaded yet. Udzungwa site need a highly support from IT technical staff at the Team Head Office – USA to rescue terrestrial data for the year 2016!

There was a delay of 4 days later for the day of camera removal Array 3. This was due to shortage of park rangers to accompany field team as the current TANAPA policy doesn’t allow researchers to go to the field without armed rangers for security.
