On March 17, 2015 a resident on Morris Neck Road in rural Virginia Beach, VA contacted the Center for Conservation Biology that she had found a “tracker in our yard”. I made arrangements to go to her house and pick up the “tracker”. The device is the satellite transmitter that Camellia was wearing. It was found in a pile of mud near the edge of Morris Neck Road in the area that the last signal was sent by the transmitter on February 11, 2015. After inspection by Libby Mojica, the transmitter appears to have been pulled off by Camellia. The transmitter is in rather poor condition and not likely that it can be rehabbed and reused. In the second photo below you can see the transmitter number “74435” assigned to Camellia. Click on photos to enlarge.
