Update from Mara Cheetah Project
WildCRU researchers, Dr Femke Broekhuis, director of the Mara Cheetah Project and Dr Nic Elliot, director of the Mara Lion Project already collaborate closely. This year they have also been working with another WildCRU alumni, Dr Arjun Gopalaswamy, on estimating cheetah numbers using spatially explicit modelling that Arjun developed as part of his DPhil studies. You can read more about the Mara Cheetah Project, and download reports at www.maracheetahs.org. The current Mara Lion report is downloadable here (PDF, 1.6MB).
The Mara Cheetah Project and the Mara Lion Project are both supported by the Kenya Wildlife Trust.
