Apart from these general data there were also a few highlights that the volunteers were able to participate in and assist with. In total there have been 337 cheetah sightings and two animals were removed from snares.
The African wild dogs have been sighted the most: 1.676 times. Furthermore, there have been 16 relocations, three snare removals and 15 collars have been deployed.
There have also been a lot of elephant sightings: 544 in total, as well as 135 monitoring sessions. A special highlight has surely been the treatment of five animals as well as the introduction of elephants to Somkhanda in February.
Lions have been sighted 780 times in that period. 14 relocations, five deployed collars, and four wound treatments were further highlights with lions in the past year.
The shy leopard, however, has only been sighted 47 times, but they have been caught on camera traps 952 times. Pleasant news are the fact that there were 41 newly captured individuals and by now six different leopard survey locations.
