I am putting together a booklet on Botswana mammals that will be given away to teenage school-goers in Botswana under the Junior Ranger programme of the Knyphausen Foundation https://www.facebook.com/pg/juniorrangerbotswana/posts/ . They have already done a booklet on trees and plants, and one on birds https://www.facebook.com/KnyphausenStiftung/photos/gm.2360508197524262/336118730418216/?type=3, that will give you an idea of the final product.
I have sourced photos to illustrate what each species looks like from friends, associates and kind people I have located through the internet, but there are still a few species that I do not have an image for;
Cape short-tailed/eared gerbil Desmodillus auricularis,
hairy-footed gerbil Gerbillurus paeba,
bushveld gerbil Tatera leucogaster,
highveld gerbil Tatera brantsii,
either of the multimammate mice Mastomys coucha or natalensis,
either or both of the Thallomys tree rats; nigricauda and paedulcus,
fat mouse Steatomys pratensis,
short-snouted sengi/elephant shrew Elephantulus brachyrhyncus,
African clawless otter Aonyx capensis,
Egyptian/large grey mongoose Herpestes ichneumon,
and a bushpig Potamochoerus larvatus from southern Africa with the dull brown and grey colouration.
I was wondering if anyone has images that they would let me use for the booklet, please ? Because it is a wildlife charity project I can’t offer to pay, but photographers will be credited, and I can get a few copies of the booklet that you could give away to young friends or relatives. You can get me on e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Best regards, Peter Apps
