Research Applications

The Kalahari Meerkat Project offers independent researchers access to our habituated and well documented meerkat populations, as they provide an unique opportunity to study co-operative mammals:

  • Wild meerkats in their natural habitat, and their in-family and inter-group social interactions can be studied.
  • Previous research includes behaviour, endocrinology genetics and immunology analyses, amongst others.

Please follow this link for a description of our meerkat population.

Independent researchers are all people on Rus en Vrede and Gannavlakte (known as the Kuruman River Reserve – KRR) that carry out research on meerkats or other species, but are not directly employed by the Meerkat Project to do so. This includes MSc and PhD students, post-docs and other researchers.

If you are interested to conduct research at the KRR, please

We thank you for your application and will get in contact with you as soon as possible.
