Just a small update:
1) Namabies - Has been seen recently around Gunong. Last sighting was quite awesome - she was seen in a tawny eagle's nest eating the chick - on 24th of August 2016.
2) Safran - was seen with a cub near Ljiersdraai. ( June 2016 - we have not had a direct report yet)
3) Haigamas - as this leopardess is the oldest known project leopard(17 years old, and perhaps the oldest known wild leo in the world?), last sighting was a km north of Nossob on 20 July 2016. :dance:

A Special Request:

Were you at Grootkolk on the 28th of July this year? The project has had a report of a leopard sighting(looks female) at the Grootkolk waterhole at around 21.30 that evening. If you were there, or know of someone who was there then, could you please ask them to report to the project - ( ktp.leopards@gmail.com). This leopard could be Rosa's cub, but at the moment we have no way to confirm the id, so are hoping to receive more pix taken on that night. :pray:
