SAVING AFRICA’S ENDANGERED SPECIES
Vultures & Raptors
Tumbeta is home to breeding nests of the critically endangered Lappet face and White back vultures. Over 20 nesting sites of White backs have been seen on the reserve and each year chicks are successfully raised to maturity, adding to these vulnerable and threatened populations.
Saving South Africa’s last free roaming, endangered predators. These include Leopard, wild dog, brown hyena and Cheetah. The Waterberg district and northern and western Limpopo are home to the last free roaming wild dogs and a critically important Cheetah population.
Our focus is to attain accurate data on the movements of the predators and raptors, work with and support our neighbouring farmers and share in our findings at ground level so that landowners are better informed and become more tolerant of these endangered species which also bring value to the area.
