Why do we need to Collar & Monitor Endangered Species?

  1. Studying the animals and recording behavioural, social and feeding patterns for research purposes.
  2. Monitoring is an effective way of keeping track of animals movement patterns and demographics and learning about their ecology and population structures.
  3. Monitoring animals intensively allows us to predict future movements and possible dispersals of wild dogs from their packs, for example.
  4. We are able to detect if animals have left the confines of the park - allowing us to act immediately to bring them back, thereby preventing conflict and interaction with humans and domesticated animals (which could be carriers of Rabies, Parvo or Distemper virus).
  5. By being in the field with the animals on a day-to-day basis, we pick up on poaching incidences quickly as well as injuries from fighting and predation.
