The conservation of Chizarira's Reedbuck.

by African Lion & Environmental Research Trust
The conservation of Chizarira's Reedbuck.

Summary

Reedbuck (Redunca arundinum) are a medium-sized antelope that lives in grassed areas and along wet areas with good grass cover. In the Chizarira Protected Area (P.A.) complex, wild fires sweep through the savanna annually destroying grassland habitat and causing wet areas to dry up. This project will supply status and population numbers of the reedbuck and highlight threats against the habitat and the reedbuck. We do not want this species to become extinct in the P.A.

Challenge

The problem is that the Reedbuck in the protected areas of Chizarira/Chirisa/Chete that cover an area of 4,703km2 in northern Zimbabwe are on the verge of extinction in these protected areas. The primary benefactor of this project is the Reedbuck (Redunca arundinum) in the Chizarira Protected Areas. By using camera traps ALERT can conduct research and monitor the movements and habits of this species.

Solution

This project aims to assess the population status of this species in the Protected Areas, ALERT has initiated a reedbuck monitoring and research project in partnership with the Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority. ZPWMA will benefit as they do not have the resources to carry out this important monitoring. Park managers will benefit as they will have population numbers and status of reedbuck and will be able to manage the population and the negative forces (fire, drying wet areas)

Long-Term Impact

Ensuring the long-term conservation of this locally vulnerable species and their habitat.
