Climate protocol:  In June 2013, Climate station was damaged in hit by Elephants.  The climate station condition sustained some severe damage.  Here are the details of damage:

Tower: some parts broken.  Rain Gauge (TB4-SN09-364) Bucket: destroyed and difficult to repair.  Climate Box: broken on the side of the padlock places.  Aspirate Radiation Shield (a large umbrella-like roof that contains the fan): Crooked on the umbrella.

A plan is underway to restore the station and build a fence around it to protect it from Elephants.
