und das sagt SAN Parks

Zitat

South African National Parks stated this morning that the widely reported pride of lions seen recently in the mining area outside Phalaborwa is not a known pride from the Kruger National Park (KNP) or the adjacent private nature reserves. It has been reported that this pride has been residing for more than a year within the Foskor, Phalaborwa Mining Company and direct adjacent areas, moving along the Selati river system. This area outside but adjacent to the KNP also contains elephant, buffalo and other wildlife.

The pride might have established in this area, due to the current availability of prey in these areas, and due to a lack of competition from other lion prides. The lion population within the Greater Kruger is very healthy, growing, and suitable habitats occupied. It would, therefore, be unwise to relocate a lion pride in the territory of an existing pride. The disease status of animals is also a consideration when looking at possible release areas.

KNP GM: Conservation Dr Marisa Coetzee said in a meeting between various parties it was agreed that a capture operation to be coordinated by Limpopo Economic Development, Environment and Tourism (LEDET) will be carried out as per the approved protocols. LEDET is the responsible authority on this matter. “The plan is to capture the pride and move them to a suitable area outside of the KNP and private reserves, where after they will be closely monitored by LEDET.”

KNP to continue demolishing redundant dams

Zitat

(Der Link ist für Gäste ausgeblendet. Um ihn zu sehen, bitte registrieren!)

Kruger National Park (KNP) will continue with the demolition of artificial dams in Shingwedzi and Sirheni, starting on the 18th to the 28th of June 2019. This process has been going on over the years to allow a free flow of fish species in the river.

KNP harbours over 40 fish species and the artificial redundant dams become a hindrance to their migration and livelihood. KNP is the first Park in Africa to demolish dams for ecological purposes. This will also improve river connectivity and natural hydrology in the Park, as well as remove barriers within the river system.

The process will affect some tourist routes in the Shingwedzi and Sirheni area as they will be closed off completely for the next two weeks. The dams to be demolished are Louis se Gat and Kanniedod Dams. SANParks advice tourists in the mentioned areas to respect the no-entry zones and take seriously the necessary instructions that will be given by HSMs.

University of Pretoria, SANParks and SAHRA sign heritage agreement regarding Mapungubwe Collection

Zitat

(Der Link ist für Gäste ausgeblendet. Um ihn zu sehen, bitte registrieren!)

On 14 June 2019, the University of Pretoria (UP), South African National Parks (SANParks) and the South African Heritage Resources Agency (SAHRA) entered into a heritage agreement regarding the Mapungubwe Collection. The agreement represents the institutions’ continued collective commitment to the collection and their support for maximising wider public access to it. The institutions also agree to collaborate on the realisation of their collective responsibility for the management, safekeeping and promotion of Mapungubwe’s heritage.

The agreement was signed by UP Vice-Chancellor and Principal Professor Tawana Kupe, SANParks CEO Fundisile Mketeni and SAHRA Acting Chief Executive Officer Lungi Malgas.

“The Mapungubwe Collection represents a tangible example of Africa’s rich heritage, culture and economic capacity throughout history,” Prof Kupe said. “The University of Pretoria is proud to be one of the custodians of these remarkable objects, which are national, continental and world treasures.”

The agreement marks a new development in the relationship of these three institutions, which was previously regulated by a memorandum of understanding (MoU) in June 2009. The MoU set out the principles according to which the parties would conduct future discussions and informed the manner in which the institutions entered into this heritage agreement, which reflects a much clearer vision of each institution’s roles, responsibilities and obligations with regard to the Mapungubwe Collection.

Dr Sian Tiley-Nel, who has served as Chief Curator of the Mapungubwe Collection on behalf of UP for almost 20 years, has been technically involved since the very first negotiations, which began back in 2003. She said, "The signing of the heritage agreement on the Mapungubwe Collection is a significant and historical milestone, and assures its continued curation under the responsibility of the UP Museums, as a serious responsibility of what is deemed a national resource.”

The agreement outlines UP’s institutional commitment, as the custodian of the designated collection, to continuing accountable curation and conservation, its educational role to academic communities, research, and making the collection accessible to all civic communities.

“We will continue to curate, preserve and conserve these and other collections so that future generations have the benefit of this knowledge,” Prof Kupe said. “The university’s new master’s degree in Tangible Heritage Conservation aims to produce a new generation of highly skilled professionals who are able to conserve rich cultural heritage from around the world.”

The agreement further defines SANParks’ responsibility in managing the Mapungubwe Cultural Landscape. This includes accountable curation, improved and secure storage, facilitating bona fide research, and continuing to maximise public access as well as closer collaboration with culturally associated communities.

“The signing of the agreement represents a milestone in the journey that SANParks started to improve the management of cultural heritage under its stewardship and ensure that this is done in close co-operation with key role players like UP, SAHRA and communities,” said SANParks CEO Fundisile Mketeni. “The Mapungubwe Kingdom, as evidenced by the collection, remains one of the most important periods in the development and civilisation of the Southern Africa region – a period of great pride to all Africans.”

Finally, the agreement acknowledges the obligations of SAHRA as the national heritage authority mandated to coordinate the identification and management of the National Estate of South Africa. This includes monitoring co-operation pertaining to the Mapungubwe Collection in terms of the National Heritage Resources Act No 25 of 1999.

“The specifically declared Mapungubwe Collection is one of the most important collections in South Africa that forms part of the National Estate, because it offers insight into trade between 1000 AD and 1300 AD,” SAHRA Acting Chief Executive Officer Lungisa Malgas said. “SAHRA appreciates that after 10 years of engagement UP, SANParks and SAHRA have reached an agreement about the management and conservation of this significant collection. SAHRA will fulfil its obligations to ensure that the collection is enjoyed by many generations to come.”
