ICT Update

ICT bottles on fence

It was reported that poachers cut down several hundred meters of the bottles from the fence-line at the ICT. They cut some holes in the fence and used snares to catch animals chased through the holes. There had been no rains for several weeks, and the water points were once again drying. It was beginning to feel like we were back at square one!

Fall Fundraising Tour

Cheetah Presentation Mary

Today marks the start of our fall fundraising tour! The theme of this year's tour is "Wheels for Cheetah Conservation". Our field vehicle in Kenya has given us over 400,000 kilometers of service to each border. It has served us well, but for the past couple of years the service of the old truck has been giving us too much grief. A pledge through Cheetah Friends Europe has launched the campaign with a grant of 10,000 Euro (USD$12,000). It is our goal to raise a total of $45,000 to purchase, insure and run a new field vehicle for 2013.

Robo Attracts Cheetahs

Erica setting robotic goat Cheetah within trap zone at Robo-goat

Some exciting news from the field today.... our robotic goat had a positive "capture" of two male cheetahs. The location is the same as the live goat positive "capture" two weeks ago. In between the live and robo goat we placed a scent for two weeks. OK at this point the study is preliminary and the statistical analysis still needs to be conducted... but I am so excited that our robo caught cheetah attention.
