Hyaena Relocation Timeline

In June 2014 our research partner, Carnivore Research Malawi (CRM) were contacted by Department of National Parks and Wildlife (DNPW) about increasing fear and conflict between local communities and a specific hyaena clan occupying the city. The clan was at high risk and in a collaborative effort with many discussions it was decided that the clan should be captured and safely relocated to a national park away from local communities.
