Media Release: Jackal carcasses discovered in Addo Elephant National Park

12 August 2014

It is not yet known what caused the deaths of the animals.  A South African National Parks (SANParks) vet is currently in the park investigating.  

AENP is the third largest national park and is home to the Big Five, including over 600 elephant.  Jackals play an important role in the park in terms of restoring the natural ecological processes through predation as a key means of conserving biodiversity.

Further details will be released as soon as we have more information.
