Shamwari Conservation Experience

Volunteers set up brown hyena cage trap

After removing the hyena from the neighbouring farm we then collared it and tried to track it after its release on to the Shamwari reserve, but couldn't find a signal at all.

Patience is a virtue they say so we carried on searching and a little later on we eventually picked up a signal but it was coming from the neighbouring farm we had originally taken it from, at the very same spot it was darted at.

The farmer asked us to please remove it as it is calving season and he didn’t want the hyena to catch the newborn calves. Let’s say, mission accomplished and we will post updates as they come in.
