BRinK stands for Biological Research in Kuzikus. We are expert biologists on site; university students, volunteers and researchers are welcome to join us to help us protect and maintain a piece of unspoilt Africa.
Current research at BRinK Namibia investigates the grazing impact of wildlife together with bushfire and rain on biodiversity using beetles as an indicator group.
Using an ecological experimental set-up with herbivore exclusion sites, we deliberately burn vegetation, wet and clip subplots, as well as remove litter, all factors considered important for beetle biodiversity patterns.
Here we have last weeks plots burned, hopefully mimicking real Kalahari bushfires!
