CKGR at work
Moving ahead within the research of the CKGR team, we have recorded significant milestones. Keitumetse, one of our biologists from Botswana, is an important intermediary as a local researcher between farmers and wild animals. He was able to build up good relationships with local cattle farmers, which are particularly important for the development of sustainable solutions in the farmer-predator conflict. In order to take preventive measures in the conflict, we’ve been using transmitter-collars which have proven to be a great help in monitoring the regional expansion of our lion pride. They provide important baseline data and movement patterns of the lions from Boteti and thus contribute a great deal to the study of lion populations in Botswana. We urgently need additional transmitter collars, so we can gain further experience and expand our project - please support us with a donation!
