Executive summary
The authors conducted a 55 night
camera trapping survey
in
Jozani Forest Reserve
from 1 to 29 January 2003, the most intensive photo-trapping yet undertaken in Zanzibar.All of the known
indigenous small carnivores
of Unguja were caught on lm (Table 1,
 below). Three are
endemic subspecies
. Photographs included
the rst pictures of the
Zanzibar servaline genet
, which was only described in 1998 and has hitherto beenknown solely from a damaged skin and skull. This animal may be
less rare
than has
 been assumed. We discuss this and other ndings, concluding the report with
recom-mendations
for further 
research
and for enhancing
conservation
initiatives in Jozani.i
