Black-footed Cat (Felis nigripes) Survey Namibia- Report on surveying for Black-footed cats in southern Namibia, January 2019.

Sliwa, A., Küsters, M., Hauptfleisch, M.

The Black-footed Cat Working Group (BFCWG) aims to conserve this rare cat species by furthering awareness and conducting multidisciplinary research on the species’ biology. So far the group had concentrated in two study areas in central South Africa, however one of these has been suspended in November 2018. It became apparent that research and conservation on the species must also be extended to neighbouring countries and other habitats, if this is to become a truly international project. For this reason the three authors of this report undertook asurvey in different Kalahari- and Nama-karoo vegetation types in southern Namibia between 21-28 January 2019.
