Buzzard Research

Study on the genetic relationships between Buzzard species in Southern Africa

 

MSc study undertaken by Sophia Yolisa Bam from the University of Kwazulu-Natal

 

FREEME Wildlife assisted with this study with the collection of DNA from Jackal Buzzard and Steppe Buzzard patients admitted to FREEME Wildlife. These DNA samples were sent to UKZN for Sophia’s study on the genetic relationship between Southern African Buzzard species, which included the two species mentioned above as well as Forest Buzzards and Augur Buzzards.
