IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
A very big thanks to PwC South Africa and the Ford Wildlife Foundation for covering the costs of capturing ten Cheetahs for relocation to the Zambezi Delta, Mozambique. This mammoth effort entailed two weeks of capture efforts and 9,634 km of driving through riots, lockdown, and Springbok rugby matches.
All ten Cheetahs were successfully relocated, and an additional 900,000 hectares of safe space, an area half the size of Kruger National Park, has become available for wild Cheetah conservation.

LEOPARD TOADS OF THE OVERBERG
Have you spotted a Western Leopard Toad in the Overberg? Please upload any records of Western Leopard Toads from the Overberg, Western Cape, to improve our understanding of the distribution of the species in the region.
As part of an exciting new project with the Cape Leopard Trust, the Endangered Wildlife Trust is seeking to improve the understanding of the distribution of the Western Leopard Toad (WLT) – Sclerophrys pantherina – in the Overberg region. We are calling for any observations of the species which can include historical records. We are also working with the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI) to obtain DNA samples from the region. If any WLT carcasses are found, these can be collected. For collection protocol, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
