SAWMA symposium 2016

I was fortunate enough to attend the annual South African Wildlife Management Association symposium in Tzaneen, Limpopo last month.

I presented some of the preliminary findings on the Cape Town caracals’ diet, focusing on the differences between two methods (kills found at GPS clusters and scat). We had to make a poster and also give a 5 minute speed-presentation of our work.

This was a really valuable few days of interesting talks and people. Very glad that I went and was super pleased to win the prize for the best student poster!

I think the next symposium will be in the Western Cape, so hopefully I can go again, and this time do a longer talk about my work!
