The Wild Dog Conservation Programme

The Wild Dog Conservation Programme

The African wild dog, Lycaon pictus, is native to Sub-Saharan Africa. It has few natural predators, but habitat fragmentation, human persecution and disease have slashed its numbers. According to the World Wildlife Fund, the African wild dog is one of the rarest and most endangered mammals in the world. Current population estimates are between 3000 and 6600. The story of the African wild dog conservation programme at Erindi Private Game

The Serval Conservation Project

The Serval Conservation Project

Photo cred: N. Britz (c) The serval, Leptailurus serval, is a medium-sized African wild cat. During the hunting era on the reserve, the first confirmed serval was a photograph of one shot by a hunter. Its presence on Erindi was a surprise, as the reserve isn’t within the known distribution range of this animal. In early 2008, the Global Leopard Project at Erindi found the remains of a serval that

The Pangolin Conservation Project

The Pangolin Conservation Project

Photo cred: R. Cloete (c) The pangolin or scaly anteater, Manis temminckii, is a solitary, nocturnal mammal that lives in burrows. Its diet consists mainly of ants and termites which it scoops up with its long, specially adapted tongue. Pangolin populations worldwide are under pressure by poaching and habitat degradation. Thought to be the most trafficked mammal globally, pangolins are listed as ‘vulnerable’, ‘endangered’ and ‘critically endangered’ on the IUCN

The Lion Management Project

The Lion Management Project

Photo cred: Donal Boyd Photography The lion, Panthera leo, was labelled a ‘problem animal’ when it killed livestock on Namibian farms to survive. This created a human-wildlife conflict, because rural communities often took matters into their own hands and would set up traps to remove rogue lions altogether. After Erindi learned of this, lions were transferred from outside Etosha National Park and slowly introduced into the reserve from 2005 onwards.

The Honey Badger Conservation Project

The Honey Badger Conservation Project

The honey badger or ratel, Mellivora capensis, looks more like a weasel than other badgers. Primarily carnivorous, it has few natural predators because of its extremely thick, loose skin and ferocious fighting abilities. The Erindi ecology team caught honey badgers in cage traps, then moved them to crates for transport. Once at the veterinary surgery in Omaruru, the badgers were anaesthetised and Dr Otto Zabka implanted VHF transmitters under the

The Global Leopard Project

The Global Leopard Project

Photo cred: N. Britz (c) The leopard, Panthera pardus, is found throughout Namibia, except on the Skeleton Coast. Because they occasionally take livestock on farmland, they’re actively persecuted through trapping, shooting and poisoning, and hundreds are killed annually. With the growth in human populations and changing land-use practices, it has become essential to resolve the conflict between leopards and humans in order to ensure the survival of these cats and

The Elephant Conservation Project

The Elephant Conservation Project

Populations of the African elephant, Loxodonta africana, were significantly reduced by poaching in the late 20th century. The 2015 population estimate for Namibia is over 20 000 elephants: the northwest population is about 4 000 animals and includes the elephants in Etosha National Park, while the northeastern population is over 16 000 animals. Erindi is home to over 120 African elephants and growing. The Namibian Ministry of Environment and Tourism

  • It has been a while since we saw one of our leopards photographed up close. Earlier this year it was mating season, and our resident females were on the prowl for male mates. It was really difficult to see them in the clear. But the latest film crew to visit @erindinamibia had some serious luck and found this amazing leopard sighting at the start of their filming trip. We are home to the Global Leopard Project, lead by conservationist Natasha Britz, who continuously collects data and monitors these magnificent cats 💕🐆Photo: @burakdogansoysal . . . #regram #erindi #erindinamibia #leopard #leopards #bigcats #big5 #predators #research #leopardlove #catsofinstagram #photography #nakedplanet #africa #travel #safari #wildlife #animals #conservation #wilderness #natgeo #natgeowild #picoftheday #explore #travelgram #wildlifephotography #protectwildlife #lonelyplanet

  • Be still. Be so still that you can feel the breeze through your hair. You can smell the sweet scent of the bush. You can see the colours of the sun as it peaks over the horizon. Just be still. Often we take our earth and surroundings for granted. With human populations increasing globally, the space and the time to enjoy nature is decreasing. While we are here, we must absorb it all.

  • A drone captures the feeding frenzy of our wild dog pack on a carcass. The African wild dog is a specialised pack hunter of medium-sized buck. They are highly successful hunters with nearly 80% of all wild dog hunts ending in a kill. They might seem sweet, but these carnivores flung the lungs and the foetus from the pregnant Oryx before devouring the rest of her in under 20mins. They know what to discard and what to keep. Only the fittest survive, but when there is a strong pack of wild dogs around, death is imminent 😱 📷Photo: @naudewashere . . . #regram #erindi #erindinamibia #wilddogs #savage #endangered #predators #carnivores #photography #nakedplanet #africa #travel #safari #wildlife #animals #conservation #wilderness #natgeo #natgeowild #picoftheday #explore #travelgram #wildlifephotography #protectwildlife #lonelyplanet

  • We are the home of the Global Leopard Project. This is Honey who enjoys sightseeing from the top of a tree. She not only checks out where her next meal is coming from, but she also observes any predators that might be lurking below. It’s a good thing that leopards are elusive, since they have had to adapt to changing habitats and human encroachment. But @erindinamibia they are safe to roam freely.

  • It’s hard to imagine a world without these giants. Our guests come to Africa to see them. Photographers nudge closer to capture them. And we try our best to protect them. Elephants display the greatest amount of emotion of any animal in the kingdom. They are visibly happy when digging for bulbs or when they are rolling around in the mud. They are sad and mourn when a member of the herd dies. Scientific research educates us about them everyday.

  • Is there anything sweeter than a cheetah cub that has eaten until his belly is full and now he is lethargic and needs to rest? 😻They learn to survive in the wild from their mothers. They will follow mom around and learn to hunt when they are about six months old. At two years old they are able to leave mom and hunt for themselves. It’s sometimes hard to remember that these cute faces belong to wild cats.

  • A lone elephant bull puts his best foot forward for the photographer. But keeping a distance is always advised ☝️Young bulls that are in musth are characterized by aggressive behaviour which is caused by a dramatic increase in testosterone. Musth is linked to sexual arousal or establishing dominance. Bulls in musth often produce a rumbling sound to warn other males, and to attract females in heat.

  • Water provides life to the land 🌅Finding a waterhole such as this is like finding a pot of gold. The value of a good water source is priceless. It nourishes the vegetation and provides hydration to all the species that come down from the mountain or from across the plains for a drink. Waterholes are also excellent places for catching reflections of the incredible cloud formations.

It nourishes the vegetation and provides hydration to all the species that come down from the mountain or from across the plains for a drink. Waterholes are also excellent places for catching reflections of the incredible cloud formations. This shot was taken with the @djiglobal Mavic Pro at sunset.

  • Don’t mistake an African Wild Dog for a domesticated pet. They are fierce and territorial predators. Did you know that females have all the power in the pack? The alpha female chooses to mate with an alpha male only if he has a brother to continue the offspring in case of death. Also to improve genetics within a pack, a new set of males must be introduced but only with the approval of the females. The females may be picky, but these traits are essential to the survival of a species which is highly endangered 😞💕🐶 Photo: @shalamah.tautaiolefue . . . #regram #erindi #erindinamibia #wilddog #african #girlpower #predator #dogs #endangered #awareness #africa #travel #safari #wildlife #animals #conservation #wilderness #natgeo #natgeowild #picoftheday #explore #travelgram #wildlifephotography #protectwildlife #lonelyplanet

  • The king settles into his bed for the evening 😴 The nights have definitely got cooler as Namibia moves into its winter months. It is not only humans who feel the cold, but the wildlife certainly does too. Mammals will shiver to generate more body heat and will fluff out their fur to hold in that heat more efficiently. 🦁 📷Photo: @stephaneridard . . . #regram #erindi #erindinamibia #lion #lionking #bigcat #predator #catworld #big5 #awareness #africa #travel #safari #wildlife #animals #conservation #wilderness #natgeo #natgeowild #picoftheday #explore #travelgram #wildlifephotography #protectwildlife #lonelyplanet
