  • Update on our White-tailed Mongoose (Ichneumia albicauda)🐱 White-tailed mongoose (one of our largest mongoose species), are most active from sunset through to midnight. Mongoose sleep in dens, usually termite mounds, that they modify by enlarging the ventilation shaft. Each mongoose is equipped with well-developed anal scent glands that they use to mark their home range... The twins have grown fantastically over the past few months and are looking great. In this video, you can see both male and female mongoose together in their temporary home in which they spend most of the daylight hours.....🏡😘 They are now ready for release, and once the permits are approved within the next few days, they will be moved to their new home in the wild..... Would you like to contribute and be involved in the work FREEME KZN does? Then please join the Custodianship Program.

  • Rock Hyrax have four functional digits on their front feet and three on their hind legs. All the digits are armed with nails except for the inner digit of the hind leg which is armed with a longer nail (almost like a claw...). This juvenile female Dassie was found lying in a pathway at a school,  being very lethargic, a resident was aware that there may be a problem and bought the animal into FreeMe KZN for an assessment. On assessing the female who weighs nearly 1 kg and seems to be in good condition, we could not see any injuries... We will be monitoring the Hyrax over a few days to see how she responds before releasing her back where she came from.

  • This is really touching 🙁

Possibility is that this could be 'misplaced reproductive function'.Mothers are behaviourally and physiologically prepared to take care of other species given the absence of their own young ones.The motivation towards maternal care can be so great that they redirect their attention onto others..

  • For those who asked about Star Dog Barabara’s beautiful beaded collar in Browns & White, we have a few in stock! The sizes are as follows, in centimetres, with 4 holes placed 2 centimetres apart: 
Small:  30-36cm

Medium:  38-44cm

Large:  46-52cm

X Large:  54-60cm

The width of the S-L collars are 3.25cm; the XL is a bit wider.

If you are interested to purchase collars or belts, please email: ‪info@wildatheartkenya.com‬ 
This colourway of collar or belt, in various traditional patterns, can be shipped from UK ‪from April 15th‬. How to measure for a collar:
If your dog has a collar already, place it flat on a surface and measure from the base of the buckle pin straight along to the hole used, ideally in centimetres (our collars are measured in centimetres rather than inches to give a more accurate fit). If your dog doesn’t yet wear a collar, you could use a belt threaded through the buckle just held lightly around the dog’s neck to fit, and then place it flat to measure from the base of the buckle pin straight along to the point you comfortably held on the dog, where the hole would go. If your dog is still growing, or has a thick coat, you may like to wait until they have grown to full size, and/or consider another hole/s or size up, to adjust safely if the coat gets thicker in wintertime.

We advise using the first and second holes, so the ’tail’ end tucks securely in to the D-ring. If you think you need a size bigger than the 3rd largest hole, we’d advise going up to the next size to be sure of the best, adjustable fit. However, if in any doubt, please simply send us the measurement, and we can help you choose the right one!

  • Not a normal encounter on our way home from work, this fer de lance demonstrates  grace on land and in the water. No snake hooks on hand, Manuel was not going to snag this particularly venomous species today, although it would have been interesting data. From our view, it was looking a little underweight, possibly related to the extremely dry weather we've been having. While small mammals may be in short supply, the mammal survey found plenty of evidence of larger mammals, including jaguar prints and scat, and remnants of its peccary meal🐗, and a very much still alive deer 🦌. Not to brag, but we started the day with another leatherback nest, and both green and scarlet macaws... You should really come down and see for yourself, 🙄. Really. Check out how, here: www.coterc.org  #costarica🇨🇷 #comehometocañopalma #volunteer #internship #conservation #research #tortuguero #cerrotortuguero #snakes #wildlifeinthewild

Besides the largest fish in the sea of course, we might even see a tiny little baby leopard shark 🥰 ... 📷: @chiarabussini

  • Every evening I go for a walk out from home and never know what to expect to find or see...most animals have a much better view of me than I have of them 😉 but this giraffe and I have at least met a few times before. Always a privilege to see them, and always makes the heart beat faster when seen from the ground, rather than from a car... Who doesn’t love a giraffe?
🦒
The reticulated giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis reticulata), also known as the Somali giraffe, is a subspecies of giraffe native to the Horn of Africa. It lives in Somalia, southern Ethiopia, and northern Kenya.[2] There are approximately 8,500 individuals living in the wild.[2] The reticulated giraffe was described and given its binomial name by British zoologist William Edward de Winton in 1899, however the IUCN currently recognizes only one species of giraffe with nine subspecies...
To save the remaining 9,000, or so, Reticulated giraffes, several conservation organizations have been formed. One of these organizations is San Diego Zoo Global's "Twiga Walinzi" (meaning Giraffe Guards) initiative. Their work includes hiring and training local Kenyans to monitor 120 trail cameras in Northern Kenya (Loisaba Conservancy and Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy) that capture footage of wild giraffes and other Kenyan wildlife; developing a photo ID database so individual giraffes can be tracked; informing rangers of poaching incidents and removing snares; caring for orphaned giraffes; and educating communities about giraffe conservation.

  • This beautiful creature was apparently enjoying a break from the water and some time in the snow. It’s always a treat to get a glimpse of wildlife being wild. But did you know that on the east coast of Canada there is a mass slaughter of these precious mammals every year because of their beautiful fur?! Even the babies...which are bludgeoned to death with a club between one and 3 1/2 months old! In fact, 97% of harp seals killed are less than three months old. It’s deplorable, ruthless, inhumane, and disgusting. Last year alone over 80K seals were murdered so someone can wear a coat and pathetically flaunt and rave that it once belonged to a seal. Canada must stop this senseless slaughter of harp, hood, and grey seals. And do not believe the myth that it’s to save the cod population, because research has shown that to be undeniably false. Canada... NO more licenses and funding for commercial seal hunts. Close your borders to the seal slaughters as over 30 other nations have. .

  • A grey day on the beach was exactly what we needed to repaint and replace mile markers along our turtle nesting transect. With leatherbacks due to open our nesting season soon, this was our first official look at the beach for 2019 and there are only a handful of spots wide enough for the ladies to lay. 
We'd not been on the beach for long, when we heard that north of our transect the first leatherback has laid, and unfortunately that neighbor knew, because the eggs were being offered for sale. The season promises to be as challenging as ever, and we'll need all hands on deck.
Getting multiple teams on the beach, is the most effective deterrent we have for poachers, so if you are over 18, and have 2 weeks or more to spare, we'd love for you to join us. What better way to spend your vacations, than helping in our efforts to preserve the 3 magnificent marine turtle species which depend on our beach?
Thank you to today's international crew, Amelie, representing France, Bert from the Netherlands, and Ella from the UK!
If you'd like to join them, get in touch at station@coterc.org
