On the outskirts of our concrete jungle, caracal have carved out a space for themselves. Also known as ‘rooikat’, caracal are the top predators in the Cape Peninsula yet they face multiple threats. How are these wild cats adapting to city life?
Join us for a presentation where Dr Laurel Serieys, project coordinator of the Urban Caracal Project, and PHD student Gabi Leighton will shed light on Cape Town’s shy but charismatic cats. They will share insights into the lives of these cats that the Urban Caracal Project has been studying since 2014 – how they move, feed, live and die in the Cape Peninsula. Project stickers will be available for sale after the talk and donations are welcomed.
