The   Erindi   Project   Team:    G.P.   Britz,   L’Wyk   (Erindi   Lodge   manager), Ruan   Cloete,   Natasha   de   Woronin,   Gerhard   Simon   (not   pictured)   and behind   the   camera,   Carlo   Bronkorst   make   up   the   team   that   does   the Leopard capture work.     Natasha de Woronin   Natasha   began   as   a   game   ranger   in   the   Sabi   Sands   in   1998   where her   passion   for   Leopards   grew   stronger   by   the   minute!   She   now follows   the   Leopards   at   Erindi   Game   Reserve   gathering   data   for   an M.sC and P.hD in the future.   Dr. Douw Grobler   Dr   Douw   Grobler   of   Catchco Africa   is   the   Wildlife   advisor,   veterinarian and   guardian   of   Erindi   Game   Reserve.   It   is   all   great   thanks   to   Douw that the Erindi Leopard Project exists.   JJ van Altena   JJ   also   of   Catchco   Africa   dedicates   a   great   deal   of   his   time   to   all conservation aspects at Erindi Game Reserve. Gert Joubert   Mnr   Joubert   is   the   creator   and   owner   of   Erindi   Game   Reserve.   It   is with   great   thanks   to   Mnr   Joubert   that   the   Leopard   project   exists   on Erindi Game Reserve.     Paul And Wenette Joubert   It   was   Paul’s   father   Chris   Joubert   who   together   with   Gert   Joubert, bought   Erindi   Ranch   in   the   1980’s.   For   more   than   a   decade   Paul   and Wenette   have   run   Erindi   and   at   the   same   time   are   managing   to   raise 2 beautiful children! Ruan Cloete   Ruan    has    been    a    part    of    Erindi    for    many    years.    He    is    the conservation   manager   of   the   farm   playing   a   huge   role   in   the   training of   everyone   working   in   the   field   and   ensuring   that   the   reserve   runs smoothly.   Ruan   is   a   huge   aid   in   location   of   the   Leopards   as   he   flies   a microlite that enables us to find any cats that exit the reserve.  
Carlo Bronkhorst   Carlo   studied   at   the   Bush   Academy   in   South   Africa   and   he   was   a guide    in    the    country    for    2    years.    He    has    a    wide    diversity    of qualifications   including   hunting   and   taxidermy   but   he   now   dedicates his   time   to   conservation.   At   Erindi   among   other   work,   he   spends   his days following the Lions, Pangolin and Honey Badger on the reserve. Carlo   has   a   fiery   personality   with   a   passion   for   motorbikes   and   good parties!   G.P. Britz   G.P.   is   one   of   Erindi’s   top   guides   spending   most   of   his   time   showing guests   the   wonderful   wildlife,   he   never   fails   to   be   on   site   to   aid   with Leopard capture and darting.   Gerhard Simon   Gerhard’s   father   worked   as   the   mechanic   at   Erindi   when   he   was   a child   and   he   grew   up   spending   most   of   his   holidays   on   the   reserve. He   was   never   the   conventional   guest   and   while   at   Erindi   he   would camp   with   no   more   than   a   sleeping   bag   in   the   bush   with   his   friends and    most    of    their    time    was    dedicated    to    catching    anything    from snakes   to   cheetah   cubs! Although   Gerhard   has   taken   over   the   role   as the   Erindi   mechanic,   he   dedicates   a   huge   amount   of   his   time   to   the field especially the Leopards.   Jakkals   For   the   past   3   decades   Jakkals   has   been   part   of   the   Erindi   team.   He has   experienced   the   changes   of   the   farm   from   once   cattle   to   hunting to the present ecotourism venture that has begun.   Reinhardt   Reinhardt   is   a   local   Otjiherero   who   has   been   working   at   Erindi   for more   tan   a   decade.   He   knew   the   reserve   as   a   hunting   farm   and   is now   seeing   the   change   into   ecotourism.   Both   Reinhardt   and   Bennie began   ranger   training   in   early   2008   and   will   have   the   opportunity   to share their extensive local knowledge with guests in the future.   Bennie   Bennie   has   been   with   Erindi   for   almost   two   decades   and   together with   Reinhardt,   is   training   to   become   a   ranger.   In   April   2008   they   will fly    to    South    Africa    to    the    Kruger    National    Park    to    attend    the EcoTraining ranger course.   Riechard   There   is   an   old   legend   at   Erindi   that   says   if   Riechardt   touches   a   trap, a   Leopard   will   be   captured.   He   captured   cats   at   Erindi   for   many   years and   he   has   incredible   knowledge   especially   with   regards   to   trapping. When    a    trap    is    set,    Riechardt    is    consulted    and    he    always    gives incredibly   valuable   information.   The   legend   certainly   appears   to   hold true   and   when   this   man   visits   a   trap   we   can   be   sure   that   within   days there will be a Leopard captured!
