O udeberg Nature Reserve is currently hosting its first international students. Starting last month, the research programme for undergraduates and postgraduates will run for 3 months. The current researchers come from Nottingham Trent University, Plymouth University and Northumbria University and are completing field studies into a variety of areas, including the impact of our recent veld fire. Subsequent programmes will build on their research so that valuable long-term data can be captured.

Here is a photo of one of the students, Vicki, identifying the spoor of a Cape leopard – either a young male or an older female. Let’s hope he / she poses for the camera traps!
