The Bushmen are among the best hunters and trackers in the world. They are able to determine the species, sex and age of an animal after examining the traces left behind by the beast. Now the sacks of hide containing bows and poisoned arrows worn by these men now also shelter a "Cybertracker", a small pocket sized computer equipped with a satellite connection.
The scientific knowledge possessed by these men has been passed down from generation to generation since the dawn of time, yet may well soon fade away into oblivion, as have so many other traditional forms of knowledge. Yet thanks to the gift of South African Louis Liebenberg, who has donated computer equipment to tribal leaders, illiterate Bushmen may now demonstrate the value of their ancestral knowledge to contemporary western scientists, opening doors to a new system of values which may modify our methods of wildlife management.
