The coastal lioness with two small cubs are still at large despite an extensive effort to locate them. An Early Warning logger was mounted at the Uniab Delta that will alert us if the lioness or any other lions fitted with EW collars approach the area.

A new satellite collar failed to transmit data after it was fitted to a lioness in the Hoanib area. The lioness was located and the error was identified and repaired via a satellite link without the need to immobilise the lioness.


A Black-backed jackal, suffering from an advanced stage of Sarcoptic mange, was captured at Mowe Bay seal colony, treated with a new drug (Bravecto), marked with a visual collar and released.
