We had several exciting close encounters with the "big cat" species in our study area during our May-June giraffe and TUNGO surveys. Seeing these magnificent wild predators reminds us of the importance of ungulates, or hoofed animals, to this ecosystem. These feline predators depend to a large degree on ungulates for food. Without antelopes, buffaloes, wildebeests, zebras, and giraffes, then cheetahs, lions and leopards as well as smaller predators and scavengers like hyenas and wild dogs would dwindle and possibly disappear altogether. The Wild Nature Institute is proud to contribute to the science and conservation of ungulates so the food web is preserved and all wild creatures of the savanna can thrive.
