Hello All,

Welcome to our new forum :D

This forum is to discuss science and research in SANParks.

You all welcome to post all science and research matters here to open the discussion. Topics like the latest dicsussion on Bovine TB will be moved here

We have people from Wits University who have agreed to post here and discuss science and research matters and will also get SANParks scientists to post here.

Look forward to all the discussions and your contributions.

To quote Simon Gear - Science Matters :wink:

I don't want to stir things here and dig up old cows, but have any studies been done on the effect of the Mopani worm harvesting that was done last year? As far as I know, the topic reached a dead end and was buried. Or does the worm thing fall under another category of discussions. As mentioned above I come in peace but as far as I can remember we haven't reached finality on the mentioned discussion.

But having said that, I am looking forward to whatever new comes up here. It is a good idea, more intellectual discussions and less :D :thumbs_up: ( :tongue: )

Ooohhh this could become a very interesting area, especially if research findings become disputed :evil: :evil:

As the old saying goes "Lies, damn lies and then statistics" :lol:

But seriously , this could really be a valuable addition to the forum, especially if we could get wildlife research specialists from UP involved. :pray: :thumbs_up:
