Conservation and Environment in South Africa: Monthly Updates
Monthly Updates from 2011
December was another great month for conservation in the Tuli block. The rain brought some delays to work but gave the eco-system a much-needed burst of life. December saw the Baobab survey surpass 90 trees, an amazing figure that none of the management on the reserve thought we would reach in that area.
The croc survey is a census of the Nile Crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus) along the Limpopo River. Using a line transect methodology the census allows for a scientific study that provides an accurate assessment of the number of crocodiles within the study area.
