Easter and Rooibos doing well

Easter and Rooibos doing well

The Cederberg Caracal Project is growing from strength to strength and has recently received some great footage from the team at Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve and Wellness Retreat. Regardt, head ranger on the property, sent some great images of Easter and Rooibos on a springbok kill. Easter killed the antelope around May 26. The rangers found the kill and put a remote camera close by. The caracals came back at night on both the 27th and 28th of May. From the camera trap photos, both Easter and Rooibos appear to be in good condition.

If you would like to sponsor a camera for the Cederberg Caracal Project or one of the Cape Leopard Trust’s other research projects, please click here.
