Airport staff kindly brought the ladder to us, but when they arrived, only one half of the ladder was loaded on their vehicle and it would not have been sufficient to get us high enough as the bird was suspended about 20m above the ground. As a token of gratitude, it also took a small chunk out of my arm when I captured it and later emptied its bowels on At Dekker, State Veterinary technician at Skukuza who was holding the bird at the time!
Yet, while we have made significant strides, there is more work to be done and we need your help. By collaring Wild Dogs, we are able to monitor, track and vaccinate them in order to save this Endangered animal. It then began beating its wings more purposefully and took to the skies after a short run.
African Wild Dogs range over a vast landscape which makes it difficult to monitor and track packs.
This is one of those songs. Innone other than our State Security Minister, David Mahlobo, was reported to have close ties to a rhino horn trafficker in the country. This makes them more susceptible to human-wildlife conflict, snaring and diseases such as canine distemper and rabies. The EWT calls for stringent investigations into these cases and, should the allegations against former President Zuma and former First Lady Mugabe be found to be true, the sternest judgement should be meted out.
To have these magnificent creatures wiped from the face of the Earth simply because of a MYTH is inconceivable. It is however, gravely concerning when the allegations of government participation in wildlife crime extend to the highest offices in the land.
From the smallest frog, to the majestic rhino; from sweeping grasslands to arid drylands; from our shorelines to winding rivers: I remembered that one of our ladders previously used to access Southern Ground Hornbill nests in Kruger was in use at the Skukuza airport and we requested that this be brought to the scene to see if we could climb up to the bird to possibly remove it.
The children all spontaneously broke into applause when the bird took off and it disappeared from view a short while later. But for one reason or another I never did. They need a large and ecologically diverse landscape to roam and hunt, yet we are in danger of forever losing this carnivore as a result of habitat loss, snaring and disease.
We decided that the best site for the release of the bird was the Skukuza golf course and drove there with the bird. Through our work, we have reintroduced Wild Dogs into Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique and revived the populations in the northern section of Kruger National Park through active monitoring.
Likewise, this song was provident. The time to act is now. On Sunday, 25 Marchit was reported that former South African President Jacob Zuma is being investigated by the Hawks for allegedly accepting a R1 million cash bribe from a Western Cape abalone dealer in exchange for keeping Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Minister, Senzeni Zokwana in his Cabinet during the reshuffle after the local elections.
An estimated remain in South Africa. But there is hope. It is also one of the gravest threats to many wildlife species, and one that conservation NGOs such as the EWT are tirelessly fighting to address.
We were on hand seconds after it landed safely on the ground and were able to catch it to assess its condition and for possible treatment. This can, however, become a losing battle if corruption and involvement by government officials continue to play a role.Mar 26, · The Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT), champion of conservation in Africa, is deeply disturbed at the recent allegations of political involvement in the illegal trade in wildlife, at the highest possible levels in southern Africa.
