It has been an amazing journey from the printed version to the online one with this edition also having links to online videos available. Just a quick reminder where the name came from the Hooo-Hooo is derived from the stress call of the wild dog, the animal serving as the logo of the wildlife Group. I hope you enjoy this exciting and amazing issue. Please continue supporting the Hooo-Hooo with interesting articles and presentations. Many thanks Katja Koeppel Senior Lecture Wildlife University of Pretoria Wildlife Specialist
