Scorpions are generally disliked; yet they form a vital role in maintaining a healthy ecosystem. This project aims to survey the scorpion diversity in Tswalu Kalahari. Location records are being gathered in order to map out scorpions distributions on the property. From collection records, abundance, distribution within the reserve, ecological requirements, and associations with specific habitat, ecological and vegetative zones are recorded. This study is undertaken by leading scorpion expert and author of the book Scorpions of Southern Africa, Jonathan Leeming.
