Understanding Human-Wildlife Conflict and finding solutions:

This 4x4 truck, will have to have long-range fuel tanks, water containers, heavy-duty springs and tyres, solar panels and extra power-supply for fridges to keep the medication cool, etc.
AfriCat’s field projects are expanding to include communal support and will be modified to allow basic surgical procedures in the field, like taking a plastic bag out of the stomach of a cow so that the poor farmer does not have to take his cow to town.
Cost approx.: Vehicle N$ 950 000.00.

A Mobile Field Clinic

Through our personal experience as farmers and understanding of the livestock farmers’ struggle against predators, especially the lion and spotted hyaena, we have identified the need for on-going community support in the form of improved livestock protection as well as health care (eg. eye infections, injury caused by predators, etc) and animal husbandry, domestic dog and cat sterilisation and vaccination programmes (large numbers of domestic dogs are infected with Canine Distemper, transmitting to wild carnivore populations, esp the Endangered African Wild Dog; domestic cats breed with the African Wild Cat).

This vehicle will be modified to allow for basic surgical procedures in the field and should be fitted with long-range fuel tanks, water containers, heavy-duty springs and tyres, extra power supply, solar panels, refrigeration, etc.

Apart from community support, this field clinic will be equipped to deal with emergency wildlife cases such as removing snares, vaccinating certain plains game species against infectious disease (i.e. rabies) as well as assist the research teams with immobilisation, collaring and select relocation.
