Description Species counts were collected using ecological transects (Traditional Sampling, TS =1) and citizen scientists on game drives (Safari Science, SS =1) from June - August 2013. Dist_Livestock was created using points from livestock locations collected during the TS fieldwork, and distance to those points was calculated in ArcGIS. TWI was calculated in ArcGIS using slope and elevation from a 30m DEM. Dist_river was calculated using stream data produced from the same DEM. The wildlife location data were separated into groups ("Groups" column) spanning 16 days, which were centered on each of the Landsat scenes, and the NDVI values were extracted to those locations.
