Vulpro

The tagging datd assists us with learning about the birds movements, foraging and distribution ranges,  eating preference, protected vs             non-protected land use, roosting sites, breeding  etc etc.     

                 Basically it's the birds identity document.

Brake for wildlife  - EWT Road kill project

Kznsightings along with Hilltop Honorary officers, capture all our reported road kill sightings posted by members onto the EWT data system, to help with the recording of  HIP data.

If, during your travels, in park  you spot any roadkill on our roads please record your sighting via kznsightings or email us or Hilltop Honorary officers and the WTP will use the data you share in their work to reduce the impacts of transport on our wildlife. The WTP has launched the Road Watch South Africa smartphone app to make your participation in their Roadkill Research and Mitigation Project easier.
