Join Adriaan, to learn about the CyberTracker Trailing Evaluation and the role of wildlife trackers in eco-tourism, conservation, anti-poaching, and more.

"The Track & Sign Interpretation evaluation tests the tracker's knowledge of the "ABC" of tracking. The Trailing evaluation tests the Tracker's ability to apply the "ABC" and "read" the trail through the landscape and ultimately find the animal or person that made the trail. We will look at the history, the process, the scoring system, and how it has impacted to the standards of tracking. We will also look at how it has impacted on the socio-economic standing and lifestyle of some of the trackers in South Africa.

There are a large number of wildlife trackers employed in the eco-tourism industry in South Africa, where they track and locate dangerous game for tourists to view. These trackers are actively tracking lion, rhino, leopard, and other species with the purpose to find them without disturbing the animals. They are often very proficient and effective in what they do, and yet some of them are the most humble people you will ever meet."

Adriaan will be sharing slides and stories from his extensive background tracking African wildlife.
