Fieldwork at Tswalu Kalahari Reserve (South Africa)


Frédéric and his wife Nathalie spent 10 days of fieldwork in the amazing Tswalu Kalahari Reserve in the Northern Cape province of South Africa. This highly productive session allowed collecting fecal samples form both aardvarks and pangolins, but also ants and termites from the reserve. This also marked the start of an exciting collaboration with Nora Weyer, Wendy Panaino, and Andrea Fuller from the Wildlife Conservation Physiology lab at the University of Witwatersrand (Johannesburg) on assessing the diet of these ant-eating species using molecular tools. Many thanks to Duncan MacFadyen, Dylan Smith, and Gus van Dyk for allowing us to work in the reserve.
