Someone wanted to come for a ride with us. This friendly fella lives among the game animals at one of our survey sites and is great friends with the resident zebra herds. He has retired and is living out his days eating grass and getting pats from visitors! #CapeTownVolunteer #CTRCI

Our volunteers regularly collect rubbish off one of our local beaches. This is then sorted into trash and recycling so it can be disposed of responsibly. #CapeTownVolunteer #CTRCI

The Plains Zebra is the most abundant of the 3 different zebra species. They can be distinguished from Mountain Zebras and Grevy's Zebras by the stripes that extend onto their bellies and the 'shadow stripes' that sometimes form between their black markings. We are often lucky enough to encounter zebras during our surveys! #CTRCI #CapeTownVolunteer

Angulate Tortoises are endemic to southern Africa and are recognizable by their striking shell markings. We have to watch out for these little guys as we drive around the bush land areas we visit! #capetownvolunteer # ctrci
