Curated Jul 15, 2016 • by Safarious
The Ant Collection recently hosted their annual Game Census Safari and it was, once again, a roaring success! Traditionally, a game census is conducted by helicopter but The Ant Collection likes do things a little differently and prefer to use their trusty steeds. This is not only less disruptive to the wildlife, but also allows the guests to get involved and get their hands dirty. Guests who chose to participate were afforded various opportunities to help out, from game counting and darting, to capturing and relocating wildlife.
