30-09-2010 - Southern-central black rhino
This project was to purchase a new 4WD vehicle for the North Luangwa Conservation Programme in Zambia, a joint project of the Zambia Wildlife Authority and the Frankfurt Zoological Society. Black rhinos have been reintroduced to North Luangwa National Park in four phases from 2003-2010, and the ongoing task is to monitor and protect this population. Vehicle support for patrols is essential.

Shoebill is one of the rarest wetland specialist birds of sub-Saharan Africa. Its population in Tanzania is in low hundreds, this project study its ecology in western Tanzania. We look at its habitat selection for foraging, nesting and survey its distribution extent in all suspect sites. We are also interested to study the effect of anthropogenic activities such as fire, grazing and fishing.

Yearly percentage of females calving is the best fitting function of Plant Available Nutrient (PAN) and Moisture (PAM) in predicting black rhino population performance. Low PAN, high PAM areas yield maximum reproductive returns while high PAN, high PAM areas yield the converse for black rhino. This study contributes to selection criteria for areas that yield maximum reproductive returns for black rhinos insitu.
