CCB at the CKGR Spoor Survey
CCB volunteers Harriet and Alex, along with their Bushmen trackers, were lucky enough to spend over a week in the CKGR during mid November 2014 taking part in a large carnivore spoor survey which involved a number of wildlife researchers from throughout the country. Despite being almost washed away by very heavy rains and magnificent thunderstorms, they found cheetah, leopard, lion, brown hyena, and African wild dog spoor. They were lucky enough to get direct sightings of the famed black-maned Kalahari lions, many bat-eared foxes and even an aardwolf! They had no direct sightings of cheetah unfortunately but the numerous spoor they encountered signals positive signs for the species in the CKGR. We want to thank Kalahari Research and Conservation for having us join them to be a part of this survey.
