The Karoo Predator Project participates in the conservation assessment of Canis mesomelas

Dear followers,

As you probably know from a previous blog post, the Karoo Predator Project is involved in some of the assessments for the 2016 Red List of Mammals of South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland. The project is led by The Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) and the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI) and provides an up-to-date assessment of the state of South African mammals, of which 57 (17%) are deemed to be threatened with extinction and 34 (10%) are Near Threatened.

The Karoo Predator Project took part in several of these assessments and the one on black-backed jackal has recently been published.

The other assessments in which the KPP got involved are the caracal, the black-footed cat, the chacma baboon and the grey rhebok ones (national  and global).

Enjoy the read!
