Large Carnivore Study
Our Bushlife Conservancy team have had a busy and successful month conducting the first phase of our Large Carnivore Survey in the middle Zambezi, together with Zimparks. The aims of the survey are to identify population dynamics and spatial ecology of the large carnivores in Mana Pools, thereby providing up to date information for wildlife management. The first phase was a game count. Each day our team did spoor counting in the morning, and spent the evening doing callings in selected areas. The final tallies are now being collated before the next phase of the research project.
