Small Mammals Project

Part of building a species list and knowing the system is having knowledge about what species are there and in what habitats they are using.

Ubuntu Wildlife Trust received 137 small mammal traps for the use in small mammal research. 

These Tomahwak and Sherman traps are ethical live traps of varying sizes and able to trap mammals ranging from a caracal down to the smallest mouse. These animals can then be released immediately back into their environment or moved to a new area if necessary.

We did not have any planned small mammals projects, so we decided to provide these traps to other organisations who were conducting permitted conservation work.
