In Search of Namibia’s Desert Lions – TOSCO Sponsor Field Trip 23-26 April 2014

Does Dr. Stander ever sleep? We met him after sunset, somewhere in the middle of the Palmwag Concession. We had driven all day, and so had he. But while we set up camp, and prepared our dinner, Dr. Stander made for the next hill, to listen for lions via the radio system. He came to our camp fire for a lively chat and when we went to bed, he went back to the hill to continue listening for the lions. Whereas we bothered about breakfast the next morning and had to break up camp, Dr. Stander drove off in search of the lions – but not before telling us exactly, where we would meet him again.

Researching desert lions in the Namib obviously is a dedication, not a job.

What is Campfire?

Campfire is a place where published items with the most participation go so that everyone knows what’s hot. The more people that collaborate around an item the hotter the fire gets.

Starting a Campfire

Campfires get started when a published item in the Explore section recieves a high rate of participation from other members.

What is Stoking?

Stoking is a form of fire starting. When you stoke an item on safarious you’re basically promoting as a campfire worthy. Stoking has a higher value over comments and views taking place on an item.

The more stokes the higher the chances an item will catch and turn a campfire.
