Singita Volcanoes National Park – Biodiversity Monitoring

All our conservation work, including this project, is born of our love for Africa and our need to protect it. Become a part of preserving Africa’s legacy for future generations.

Singita’s Conservation Officers continuously monitor biodiversity across the property through:

  • Camera traps Installed in agreement with VNP, these monitor wildlife entering the property and determine how and when they make use of the additional wildlife refugia area. The data is used to develop our biodiversity management plan for SVNP. The traps show regular sightings of buffalo, bushbuck, jackal, elephants as well as occasional gorilla groups.
  • Bird identification The region is home to more than 300 bird species. The team is recording the species on the property and developing a comprehensive checklist for guests.
  • Alien invasive plant species control Removing and controlling the spread of exotic, invasive alien tree species to reduce competition with local species, while replanting indigenous trees and shrubs – as part of the expansion of our reforestation and rewilding efforts.
