Brown Hyena Research Project

Dr. Ingrid Wiesel came to Luderitz to do a pilot study on Sperrgebiet brown hyenas for the first time in 1995. She returned to Luderitz in 1997 to collect data for her Master’s thesis on the foraging behaviour of brown hyenas at Cape fur seal colonies. She obtained her Master’s degree at the University of Hamburg in Germany in 1998. During the same time the Brown Hyena Research Project was founded, although it was only registered as a Namibian non-profit organization in 2002. From 1998 until 2005 Dr. Wiesel collected data for her PhD thesis that was looking specifically at the hunting behaviour of brown hyenas at seal colonies. Dr. Wiesel obtained her PhD degree in 2006. Apart from conducting pure scientific research, she has also been involved in many applied studies, such as the participation in Environmental Impact Assessments, pre- to post mining impact studies and providing sound data for land use plans e.g. with regard to the zoning of the Sperrgebiet National Park. Dr. Wiesel became a honorary research associate at the Animal Demography Unit at the University of Cape Town in South Africa in 2011.
