Safety in confrontation with big game

Safety abroad Worldwide, encounters between humans and various big game species occur time and again (z. B. lions, hippos, tigers, bears, pumas), be it intentional (z. B. Safaris) or unintentionally (z. B. farmers, hikers). However, it is not uncommon for such encounters to result in confrontations, often resulting in serious or even fatal injuries to humans. There is no meaningful data on confrontations with wildlife. Most studies of der-type incidents are limited to specific regional areas, or else to specific wildlife species. Christian Kuhn, Julia Kuhn, Thomas Kupper

A literature review was conducted with the purpose of using some studies from it to provide an overview of confrontations with big game and thus tend to assess the risk in different regions. Studies from North America and sub-Saharan Africa were evaluated and compared.

This round trip takes us to Oman’s southern province of Dhofar, the ancient land of frankincense.
Through a spectacular coastal landscape we will go to Wadi Shuwaymiyah with its gigantic rocky landscape, where for the first time a hike is offered. During a night of camping on the kilometer-long beach, we can swim in the tides of the Indian Ocean. Around sunset and sunrise countless hermit crabs and shrimps can often be seen.
Highlight of this trip is the drive to and in the vast sandy area of Rub al-Kahli, the "Empty Quarter". We spend three nights and days in the middle of the sand dunes – their shapes and structures are fascinating, as is the sparkling Arabian starry sky.
With the sometimes long distances, however, longer journeys are unavoidable.

Optional pre-program Muscat – Salalah can be booked.

As Black hole is an object of critically high mass and density that infinitely bends the surrounding space-time. Black holes are essentially formed during the collapse of heavy stars.

A black hole produces strong gravitational forces, which can tear apart a spaceship in its immediate vicinity. (VOY : Voyager)

Kyoto was the second stop of our Japan trip after Tokyo. The old imperial city with its insane density of shrines, temples, gardens and palaces had to be, we thought, and if we ever come to Japan again, we will go there again. Nevertheless Kyoto with children is not such a simple thing at all.

Natural forests are essential for bats. They offer both varied hunting grounds and old trees with numerous living cavities. Even in small natural forest areas, many species can be found.

Bats are fascinating because they find their way in a world that is almost completely closed to humans – darkness. Their sense of hearing and locating is so fine that they can detect insects only a few millimeters in size during flight. The different bat species differ in the technique they use to hunt prey. The fringed bat, for example, hunts just above the ground for small mosquitoes – gladly near damp areas. The Bechstein’s bat, on the other hand, relies not only on ultrasound but, thanks to its large ears, can hear the crawling sounds of insects on dry leaves – and pick the prey directly from the ground. The long-eared bat, on the other hand, has such high-resolution ultrasonic hearing that it can detect the subtlest of movements, such as the crawling of a beetle. While hovering, they scan the bark of trees or branches for prey and grab the insect as soon as it moves. All in all, bats consume enormous amounts of insects and spiders. In order to become full, a bat must consume a quantity of food in one night, whose weight is about 2.000 mosquitoes.

The most important bat habitat

In Germany, there are more than 20 different species of bats, with some species being widespread throughout the country and others occurring only in certain regions. The different hunting and living habits of the various bats ultimately lead to the fact that most species are found in near-natural forests. Only here they find a colorful mosaic of open and closed areas, and old and young tree stands. Bat experts agree that natural forests in particular are ideal bat habitats. This is because, in addition to the varied hunting grounds, these also offer the tree hollows that are so important for bats as roosts.

Sometimes the world breaks apart at dinner. Just like that, without a loud bang, quite unspectacularly. Tatjana Jung clearly remembers the phone call that interrupted her dinner with her family. To the telephone conversation, which went so matter-of-factly, that they with a friendly "Yes, thank you for calling, until tomorrow then!" ended. Talk again tomorrow, operate quickly, do not wait long. The doctor did not pronounce the word cancer. Nevertheless it seeped into Tatjana Jung’s consciousness. What she did then seemed quite natural to her at the time, but today she shakes her head about it: "I continued eating for a while, then dropped my fork and got up to make a phone call." – with a colleague who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. To whom it was not necessary to explain what fog feels like in the head.

Tatjana Jung is a cheerful person. Freckles, the red hair cut to a pageboy head, laugh lines around the eyes. So this is what a woman looks like who has cancer. Who took up the fight against a deadly disease, knowing by now that she will lose it. Tatjana Jung tells that her hairstyle is not chosen voluntarily. "I used to have thick, long curls. But the hair did not grow back like that after the many chemotherapies."
