Leopard Project August 2011

(no comments)

This month 30 different species were caught on the trap cameras, with a total 399 photographs taken altogether. This is a significant increase in both respects and can be attributed to the rotation of the cameras, or even the change to warmer weather. 

Although the elusive Cape Leopard eludes us yet, there has been a marked increase in predator species - attributed perhaps to the scats we obtained from Tenikwa Wildcat & Wildlife Sanctuary, and/or to the rotation of the cameras. 

We have been delighted lately to capture numerous shots of Honey Badger on camera, a near threatened species listed as a schedule 2 protected wild animal.
