Do they specifically avoid areas mostly used by leopards? These factors will help us understand predator dynamics in areas where both exist, providing valuable insight which will help alleviate farmer-predator conflict. Willem is also going to be heavily involved with the CLT children’s environmental program beginning early next year. One of the fantastic activities he will be involved with will be taking children out to track & observe Rocky in this vast Cederberg wilderness.
Rocky was last seen walking up the beautiful Kromrivier valley. Kromrivier has an Anatolian Shepherd dog watching out over their livestock – this is obviously working well, as Rocky has skirted the camp where the sheep and dog were on Sunday, and they have yet to experience livestock losses since the dog has been working there.
Julia Hazel, as part of the Paul Middelmann Memorial Fund – has donated R20 000 towards Willem tracking this caracal.
Thank you for your generous and continued support!
