Gobabeb Research & Training Centre

Lecture in Swakop 9th August 7pm

Francois Becker, a researcher working at gobabeb, is busy studying the unique group of southern African reptiles the barking geckos. These are the only reptiles in the world that call in a true chorus. This sunset song is iconic in arid Namibia. Three species have been discribed and occure near Gobabeb, however a number of undiscovered species may yet be hiding within this species complex and Francois is using the qualities of their barks to guide his search for them. In Swakop on the 9th August he will share some of his preliminary findings of this search.
