Cheetas, students, census, etc.

We have been really busy during the last part of June! We went with MET (the Namibian Ministry of Environment and Tourism) to confiscate 9 cheetahs – we were able to release 8 of them back into the wild and the farmer got a small fine – but MET has their eyes on him. Besides that – all our students are working on various projects and much progress is being made in a variety of areas of research. Our camera traps are set out and Matti and Fabiano are busy with spoor tracking and checking cameras daily – we are preparing for our yearly conservancy waterhole count and will also conduct strip counts. Ah, the cheetah keeps us busy.

With cheetah purrs to all,
