ILP researchers drop in to at Safari TV


Hi Folks
As you may know, as well as my being CEO of Safari TV, I also manage the Ingwe Leopard Project, which conducts research into leopard behaviour outside of formally protected areas.
It so happens that two of the senior researchers from the ILP (Anton and Emma), will be in the Hoedspruit area over the next few days and so I have asked them to pop in to Djuma.
Anton will be going out on drive with Tara tomorrow afternoon (weather permitting). He has offered to demonstrate how we build up ID kits on leopards, one key element of this being making plaster casts of an animals spoor. The spoor as you know is just like a finger print and Anton hopes to show you how we have developed a unique system for measuring and recording the spoor of individual animals.
I hope you will find this interesting.
