A collaboration between Wildlife Act, Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife and Endangered Wildlife Trust.
This October we saw the annual vulture tagging exercise kick off at Umfolozi, Hluhluwe and Mkuze. WildFind are hosting the tracking data for several GSM/GPS units for this project supplied and fitted by Avitrack's Ben Hoffman.
The first phase of the project saw several tracking units being fitted to Lappet Faced Vultures, African White Backed Vultures and a Marabou Stork nestling. A number of units are earmarked for the White Headed Vultures, this last exercise will start in a few weeks.
See the Wildlife Act's Facebook page or their website for more details on this project and several others they are working on.
