Research Focus: My project is focussed on the spatial ecology, density, distribution, group size, and demographics of wild hippos in Botswana using a remotely piloted aircraft (i.e. drone). I’m also looking to determine and quantify the impact of hippo movement on the geomorphology and hydrology of areas through the creation of hippo trails. In addition, my project incorporates observational studies to further our knowledge of hippo behaviour, in particular understanding how hippos use their habitat. This project is the first dedicated study conducted on hippos in Botswana.
