Webinar: Walking the Thornveld at Hluhluwe-uMfolozi with Mark Hopkins

Event Details

Join Earthwatch volunteer Mark Hopkins for a photographic visit to the savannahs of South Africa, where the continent’s best known large mammals depend upon careful management to ensure their future.  Learn how Earthwatch works with local scientists to perform a biennial herbivore census in one of Africa’s most beautiful federal game reserves.  Follow along as Mark hikes 60 miles over two weeks through scenic thornveld landscapes, accompanied by an armed Zulu ranger, counting wild rhino, giraffe, buffalo, and a dozen other large mammal species, then returning to the campsite for close-up photographic visits with lions, leopards, hippos and crocodiles.  Hear how a face-to-face encounter with one of Africa’s most dangerous creatures  enlivened the adventure.
