Nice initiative. It would be interesting to see these results.

Good luck Grant, I hope you get the co-operation you're after.

Thanks guys. I've had some response so far but as of yet nothing confirmed 100% It would help greatly if all those who see this thread could forward the link onto any relevant parties.

Hi Tony, sorry for the quality of the text...photoshop didn't really like it. I am currently trying to get
hold of a map of better quality.

Basically the map is of the cape peninsula...and indicates the City of Cape Town's boundaries. In the
very North is Mamre. The coloured edge on the right of the map (Central and East) borders on Stellenbosch
and Paarl which runs down and out towards the hottentots holland until Kogelberg. These are the boudaries
but of course they are merely imaginary lines, so if you've seen a rinkhals anywhere within these boundaries,
as well as in the areas bordering them it will be useful.

I'm thinking about going out to gaansbaai to have a look at the habitat there. Anyone out there who could show me some potential sites?

Grant, I have now tracked down the guy re the rinkhals from Gordons Bay. He now runs a game lodge here in the Little Karoo in the Gamkaberg. Will make contact with him soon again.
