Project Description

The competitive relationships existing between large carnivores in terms of spatial distribution, habitat use and prey species composition and abundances remains a challenge for managing enclosed reserves.

Should one species out-compete another it may lead to the loss of diversity within the reserve but also exert an imbalanced pressure on vulnerable prey species.

In 2016 Selati Game Reserve in collaboration with the University of Rhodes embarked on a study to determine how the current carnivore regime interacts between species and the influence they exert on their prey species.
