  1. In parentheses: average ± standard deviation. Figures in bold represent the median number of individuals translocated. ‘–’ no available data. “Unknown” signifies that for the given translocation events exact numbers of individuals are not known
  2. aDenotes a single translocation event, thus no median, mean or standard deviation are calculated
