NAME: Jogi

GENDER: Male

AGE: (2017) 3 years

WEIGHT: (2015) 26.5Kg (2016) 32.8Kg

BORN: 2014 - Okakarara / Okamatapati region

SIBLINGS: Messi and Robin

RELEASED INTO THE OKONJIMA NATURE RESERVE: 13 July 2015

 

Jogi is one of our rehabilitated wild dogs in the Okonjima Nature Reserve.

On the 14th of July 2014 the AfriCat Foundation was requested by the Ministry of Environment and Tourism (M.E.T) to collect three orphaned wild dog pups (two males - Jogi and Messi - and one female - Robin ) from the Okakarara/ Okamatapati region after they were handed over by community members. Six additional pups were found dead by the time they were rescued.

Initially housed in a semi-open holding facility at the AfriCat headquarters, the pups recovered under the care of the AfriCat team from malnourishment and episodic attacks of fever. The two males had both deep incisions around their necks suggesting that they had been tied-up with a piece of wire before they were brought to the MET offices.

All dogs were vaccinated against rabies and canine distemper before they were moved into a larger, more open camp in September 2014.

 

In the beginning of September Jogi was observed with a serious limp in his right hind leg, such that he was only using 3 legs. He was treated with an anti-inflammatory analgesic and was examined to find possible causes, but neither exterior nor interior injuries could be determined. Despite his limp, he did not show any signs of weakness or a decreased level of activity. His condition clearly improved, but a slight instability was still visible and so we decided to take him for X-rays to find the cause behind his wobbly walking. To make the 50 km trip to Otjiwarongo easier, Jogi was slightly sedated for the transport. The X-ray showed some thickening of the bone in the middle of his tibia. For comparison, another X-ray was taken of the healthy hind leg, which revealed a site where the leg had broken previously. Despite a slight mal-alignment that will improve over time, as he grows and lays down more bone, the fracture has healed well by itself. We are not sure what caused the break, but it is possible that it occurred because the bones of all the puppies were weaker than they should have been. This is often the case in hand-reared carnivores, and is mostly due to an insufficient diet. In the wild, pups are given regurgitated meat that contains essential enzymes and pro-biotic bacteria which enhance the digestive and absorptive capabilities of the pup. This can be difficult to artificially supply to hand-reared pups, and therefore their diet suffers as a result.

 

In May 2015 Jogi and his siblings were moved to Alcatraz - a soft-release camp located in the 200 km2 Okonjima Nature Reserve in preparation for the introduction to Ricky and Raine who had been successfully rehabilitated in 2010.

 

The AfriCat Wild Dogs - Messi, Jogi and Robin

The wild dogs - Part 1: Rex, Ruby, Ricky and Raine

The wild dogs - Part 2: Team Fifa and the wild dog management plan 2014 / 2015

The wild dogs - An attempt of social integration of two unrelated wild dog packs and re-introduction in the Okonjima Nature Reserve.

 

The hope was that by increasing the size of the pack by introducing the three young wild dogs (1) Ricky and Raine would gain direct benefits from an increased and stronger pack and (2) the three youngsters would be able to acquire the needed hunting skills from the experienced females in order to survive in the wild. The introduction process was accompanied with a lot of aggression originating from the three young dogs and eventually cost Raine’s life. Ricky seems to be accepted by the young dogs into their pack.

However, due to her mature age and a heavy limp of her right front leg caused by a previous fracture, we are not sure for how long Ricky will be able to keep up with the younger trio because of the 9 year age difference. Constant monitoring of movement and pack dynamics will tell if Ricky will be accepted as a full member into the pack and if this introduction attempt that cost everybody involved nerves, tears and sleepless nights at least finds its almost happy ending.

 

The pups' names are all associated with the 2014 World Cup. JOGI is proudly named after the German coach Joachim "JOGI" LÖW, who led the German soccer team to victory during the 2014 world cup.

Leopard - Lila

lilaLila

lilaLila

lilaLila

 

NAME: Lila

GENDER: Female

AGE: (2018) Estimated 6 years

WEIGHT: (2014) 39Kg

BORN: 2012 in the Okonjima Nature Reserve.

 

Lila is one of our leopards in the Okonjima Nature Reserve.

LILA stands for "night" or "dark-haired beauty" in the Persian language. She was collared on the 5th of July 2014 during our annual AfriCat health check and is thus, one of the newest members of the Okonjima family. Before she was collared she was spotted occasionally by the Okonjima guides as well as by the AfriCat research team. Approximately 2 years old she is still a very young cat whose origin is not definitely clarified. We assume her to be either Jo Jo’s or maybe even one of Isaskia’s cubs. She is still very cautious and timid and likes to withdraw into dense bush when approached to close. Her current home range extents from the open Serenjima plains up to the area south of Ombu Dam. 

We are excited to pursue the ways of this beautiful young leopard and to watch what the future will hold for her.

 

Adoption Fee

Adopt Lila for 1 year: N$ 3,500 / U$ 440 / £ 290 / € 350

Be a sole supporter (adopter) of Lila for one year: N$ 12,000 /

Swakop 2015

NAME: Swakop

GENDER: Male

AGE: (2018) 5 years

WEIGHT: (2014) 30Kg (2015) 39.2Kg (2016) 42.4Kg

ORIGIN: Swakopmund

COMPANIONS IN ENCLOSURE: Mundi and Dune

REASON FOR CAPTIVITY: To be released. Swakop, Mundi and Dune - will remain in AfriCat's care until space opens in the Okonjima Nature Reserve for their rehabilitation to start.

 

Swakop is one of our cheetahs at AfriCat's Rehabilitation Centre.

Swakop and his sister Mundi came to AfriCat when they were about 6 - 7 months old. At the end of November 2013 Dr. H. Winterbach and Dr. D. Rodenwoldt from Swakopmund Veterinary Clinic, received a phone call about two cheetah cubs that were found near the salt works on the outskirts of Swakopmund. Employees had found them on their way home from work.

When the vet team arrived, both cubs were darted instantly. Weakened from severe dehydration and malnourishment they didn't even put up a fight. AfriCat was contacted for help and on the Friday we sent a team to Swakopmund to check on the cats. Their age was estimated between 6 and 7 months, both weighing only around 11 kilogram. After 24 hours of observations they were back on their feet, eating and drinking on their own.

Three days later the cheetah siblings were collected by Team AfriCat and brought back to Okonjima where they were released into a small hold-over enclosure for the first few days for close-up monitoring. After a week the cats were relocated into a larger camp with natural vegetation providing a safe and stress-free environment.

Swakop and Mundi - who evidently were named after their origin - have grown into two beautiful cats, who enjoy each other’s company the most. In July 2015 Dune, who was also found orphaned in the Namib Desert in May 2015, was placed together with Swakop and Mundi after she lost her companion Nyx. Not bonding quite yet, we are hoping to release our three desert cheetahs into the 20 000 ha Okonjima Nature Reserve as soon as possible.

 

Adoption Fee

Adopt Swakop for 1 year: N$ 2,500 / U$ 300 / £ 200 / € 250

Be a sole supporter (adopter) of Swakop for one year: N$ 12,000 /
U$ 1,500 / £ 900 / € 1,200

Nkosi is believed to have sired Electra’s first and second litter and was also seen mating with Isaskia on a couple of occasions during 2015.  During 2015, Madiba moved deeper and deeper into Nkosi’s territory, forcing him out of his familiar hunting grounds.

With Madiba being the younger and bigger male, Nkosi was observed moving into unfamiliar areas, outside his usual territory in the northern and western part of the Reserve. Nkosi was found with several injuries on his head and body throughout 2014 and 2015 which differed in their degree of severity. In April 2015 Nkosi struggled with an injured paw - most likely the result of a fight with another leopard - and needed medical attention due to his inability to hunt. Fortunately his foot wasn’t fractured and treatment with a long-acting antibiotic put him back on track.

In Feb 2016, Team AfriCat successfully caught and darted NKOSI who’s collar needed urgent replacement due to battery drainage. NKOSI is an exceptional cat and very popular with the Okonjima guides as well as our guests, because he is so comfortable in the company of humans!

Besides the normal procedures that are performed with every immobilization of a cat such as weighing, taking body measurements, general health inspections, collar placement and rabies shots (if required), we are currently also collecting rectal and fecal samples of carnivores for the microbiome research study that is undertaken by Dr. Holly Ganz to understand the role that microorganisms play in the health of captive and free-ranging carnivores and in how far the diet composition influences the gastrointestinal microbiome of a carnivore.
See: Current research on the cheetah microbiome.
NKOSI was in perfect condition with a stable weight of 61 kilograms. Fitted with a brand new radio-collar he was released back into the Okonjima Nature Reserve.
