The July Life History files have been uploaded.
Bad news from several groups:
- Baobab is suffering badly from TB – most animals show signs now.
- Unfortunately, also Van Helsing have a few individuals with TB symptoms.
- Gold Diggers’ only collared individual was predated, so the group is currently being tracked again.
Good news are that there were 5 successful births with surviving litters – uncommon for July, but similar to 2016 when late rains after a too dry rainy season led to a late breeding season.
