There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

@Brahimlegend so you are saying that reason are humans who live near by? Not good prospect for future if reserve doesnt monitor that area more.

Are they gonna monitor that area in the future? if not,  they will have slim chances to survive.

New clips of the Trichard male. Last one shows he did sustain an injury from his encounter with the three males that chased him but appears to still be in good condition.

As well as the nature/human conflict, the Kruger north of the Olifants River changes dramatically in ecosystem. It's quite startling to be in open Maroela/Knobthorn Savanna South of the bridge and then pretty immediately encounter almost impenetrable Mopani veld as soon as you cross. Game densities north and far north are significantly less than south of Olifants resulting in fewer predators as well generally spread out over larger territories. The area around Letaba, for example, didn't have a resident pride in the area for years as well when I first started camping there. 

Pafuri concession is the area right at the northern tip of the Kruger and probably the best area in the Park for birding but has been lion sparse for a very long time. Lions victims to the human conflict does have an effect but the very nature of the ecosystem also plays it part.

So, I take it from your experience and knowledge in the area, that even in the absence of HWC, lions living in this region will find it difficult to simply survive due to the lack of density in prey animals? Is that an accurate reading of your comment? If it is, any idea why they would intentionally move predators such as these into such an inhospitable place?
