Descrição

In 2011, South Africa’s cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) metapopulation began with the capture of free-roaming cheetahs on ranchland to populate a network of fenced game reserves. This practice has become increasingly disparaged as the wild population faces population decline due to numerous anthropogenic threats. However, occasionally, there are extenuating circumstances where free-roaming animals are captured from this population to augment the managed metapopulation. One particular female cheetah that was captured on ranchland in the North West Province in April 2014, where she was perceived to be at risk from persecution, was released onto Pilanesberg National Park She was monitored via satellite telemetry for a period of 10 months, and interventions took place during this period to ensure her survival. Satellite location data of ~11 months, including four locations per day, is availed for users interested in movement, home-range and resource use data

Dados Sobre o Projeto

In 2011, South Africa’s cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) metapopulation began with the capture of free-roaming cheetahs on ranchland to populate a network of fenced game reserves. This practice has become increasingly disparaged as the wild population faces population decline due to numerous anthropogenic threats. However, occasionally, there are extenuating circumstances where free-roaming animals are captured from this population to augment the managed metapopulation. One particular female cheetah that was captured on ranchland in the North West Province in April 2014, where she was perceived to be at risk from persecution, was released onto Pilanesberg National Park She was monitored via satellite telemetry for a period of 10 months, and interventions took place during this period to ensure her survival. This female bred successfully, and established a home-range of ~317 km² (100 % MCP), which was half that of the free-roaming cheetahs outside of Pilanesberg, and may be related to differences in anthropogenic disturbances. During the denning period she moved less, and covered only 2 % of her normal ranging area, while as expected she also travelled less during the night time. Satellite location data of ~11 months, including four locations per day, is availed for users interested in movement, home-range and resource use data.

Título Monitoring cheetah on North West Parks Reserves
Financiamento Aside from nominal funding (i.e. salaries, subsistence and travel) for one government organisation, North West Provincial Government, one parastatal conservation agency, North West Parks Board, and one NGO, the Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT), the satellite collar was funded by C4 Images and Safaris – a specialist wildlife photographic safari company.

Métodos de Amostragem

A female cheetah was immobilised using standard procedures. She was fitted with a satellite collar (Iridium GPS unit, 1 D cell AWT transmitter, 1 C cell, African Wildlife Tracking cc, 106 Nuffield Street, Rietondale, Pretoria, South Africa), that would obtain 4 location fixes per day. The download times were at the following evenly spaced times throughout the diel cycle: 00:00, 06:00, 12:00 and 18:00. The recorded data was the geographic coordinates, altitude and temperature. The collar stopped at the end of the period, while the telemetry component lasted till the end of the year in 2015, and this animal is still alive, but we have not removed her collar as yet.

Área de Estudo Restricted to Pilanesberg National Park, South Africa

Descrição dos passos do método:

  1. It is possible that the first day’s locations upon release would be at different times to that specified, which is the case when a specific schedule is selected, so such can be excluded. The fixes obtained are mostly within a 10 m accuracy.
