Notice to absent meerkats


Please note that if a meerkat is listed as "Absent at end of month", this means that he or she is currently not with her group. It does not mean that he or she is dead. Many of these meerkats left in splinter groups or rover coalitions, and are expected to return or merge with another group outside of the research area or within. According to the KMP's protocol, they are still considered members of their group for a certain period, and are thus included in the total number of animals in the respective group. For more background information on the protocol uses of LSEEN, DEAD, etc. please click here.
