Wildebeest Calving

By Will Knocker:


The NNP gnus calve in March & this year is no exception..


Usually they drop their calves in the Sheep & Goat land, but this year they have calved in the Park proper, perhaps owing to lack of grazing outside as a result of a very hot January/February..



There are only about one hundred & fifty wildebeest in NNP, so let’s hope it is now that figure + +


Once one of the most numerous herbivores in the ecosystem, wildebeest numbers are much reduced.

Let’s hope that trend  reverses with these new additions to the population..
