|We share the vision to locally guarantee the protection of the area and globally encourage the protection of biodiversity. |
BRinK stands for Biological Research in the Kalahari. We have research field stations throughout the Kalahari Desert in Namibia with exclusive access for biologists and on-site facilities. University students, volunteers and scientists are welcome to do their research, studies or internship with our organisation.
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!
