With the support of donors Dambari has been able to place camera traps in a number of locations around the Matobo Hills. These traps are critical for monitoring of local species. As a result of these cameras we have been able to monitor numbers and breeding patterns. They also aid us to monitor behaviours and food availability. On occasion, they have meant that we could provide a quick response to injured animals and check for illegal poaching in the area.
Needless to say, we can never have enough camera traps and we would be grateful of donations that enable us to purchase more to cover the Matobo Hills more thoroughly. The current species inventory stands at 55 wild mammals, domestic mammals, 26 birds and 6 reptiles. While we love to see all our local wildlife captured on film, the unexpected sightings are just a little bit extra special!
