23 Nov 2014. Para-gliders. Three para-gliders are operating in the lower Hoanib area. They circled low over the Floodplain lions, which caused the lions to scatter in all directions. One para-glider then passed low over a brown hyaena den where we were busy with valuable behavioural observations. The brown hyaena cub at the den ran away and observations had to be abandoned. When the para-gliders were approached upon landing, they claimed to be unaware of the disturbance they had caused and agreed not to fly near the hyaena den or in the Skeleton Coast Park. The incident was reported to the Ministry of Environment & Tourism and to the Directorate of Civil Aviation.
