Collaborative Conservation Continues Between South Africa and Mozambique

Zitat

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

In another victory for cross-border conservation, a series of successful wildlife translocations saw 27 Zebra and 62 blue wildebeest safely making the 1 250 km journey from Kruger National Park in South Africa to Zinave National Park in Mozambique. These new arrivals are welcome additions to the more than 2 300 reintroduced animals that are now thriving under the restoration and management programmes being implemented in Zinave.

Since 2018, more than 700 animals have been translocated under a donation from South Africas Department of Forestry, Fisheries and the Environment to the Ministry of Land and the Environment in Mozambique, as they work together, supported by Peace Parks Foundation, to restock and rebuild key parks within the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Area.

"The translocation of species from the Kruger National Park to the Zinave National Park in Mozambique is an important indication of how South Africa's conservation success is contributing to the rewilding of Africa," said the Minister of Forestry, Fisheries and the Environment, Ms Barbara Creecy. "The success of ongoing cross-border collaborations is an outstanding example of how African countries are working together to solve conservation problems and grow the eco-tourism sector."

The 2-million-hectare world-renowned Kruger National Park, managed by South African National Parks, offers a wildlife experience that ranks with the best in Africa. With more than 147 mammal species thriving in abundant numbers as a result of many years of expert conservation management and protection strategies, the park is well-positioned to support the restoration of decimated protected areas in neighbouring southern African countries.

The restoration of Zinave National Park has been one of southern Africa's most remarkable conservation success stories. After decades of human impacts severely disrupted the 408 000ha Park's natural ecosystems and healthy wildlife populations, work began on restoring Zinave to its former glory in 2016, with the signing of a co-management agreement between Mozambique's National Administration of Conservation Areas and Peace Parks. Through this partnership, significant investment has been directed towards enhancing conservation management, anti-poaching, infrastructure development, tourism development and community development interventions in the Park.

Today, thanks to wildlife donations from South Africa and Zimbabwe and through restocking from other areas in Mozambique, Zinave now boasts 13 species including impala, reedbuck, waterbuck, buffalo, zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, sable and elephant. Thriving in their safe and plentiful habitat, these reintroduced populations have more than doubled in numbers to close to 6 000 animals. With the herbivore populations flourishing, the first predators a clan of four spotted hyenas were reintroduced into the park at the end of 2020 and have already produced their own offspring.

"It is heartening to see how healthy populations of wildlife have stimulated the potential for increased tourism and related income opportunities in and around Zinave. The Park is set to become a major contributor to Mozambique's eco-tourism economies. We highly value the cross-border partnerships that we have with our governmental partners in South Africa and with Peace Parks Foundation. It is a wonderful example of how regional partnerships can contribute to building a more prosperous future for southern Africa and its people," said the Minister of Land and the Environment in Mozambique, Ms Ivete Maibaze.

Kruger and Zinave national parks respectively form the most western and eastern anchor parks of a vital cross-border wildlife corridor within the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Area. Wildlife monitoring has identified various species, such as elephants, lions and wild dogs, which are using this transfrontier migration route to access water, food and breeding grounds. Ensuring healthy and protected ecosystems in these areas is therefore not only significant to the parks, but to the environmental well-being of the region, its natural resources and human development.

und die SAN Parks Pressemitteilung dazu:

Zitat

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


South African National Parks (SANParks) said in a statement work is underway to establish a high-altitude national park in the mountains of the Eastern Cape close to the Lesotho border and the spectacular Naude's Nek pass - South Africa's highest lying road at over 2500m.

This is according to SANParks Acting CEO, Dr Luthando Dziba, who said the ultimate objective was to establish an ecologically, economically and socially sustainable consolidated protected area, primarily by working with private and communal landowners.

"The establishment of this national park will mark a new and innovative approach to protected area expansion as it will be located within a working agricultural landscape," he said.

Not only is this area rich in biodiversity and endemic species, but it also lies within the Eastern Cape Drakensberg Strategic Water Source Area which is a natural source of freshwater for people downstream. When declared the park will also improve formal protection of South Africa's grasslands which have been identified as a national conservation priority.

According to Dr Dziba, the proposed NE Cape Grasslands National Park will take a somewhat different form to traditional parks, in that the landowners will have the opportunity, through stewardship, to incorporate their land in the park on a voluntary basis. As such, they also stand to benefit from a range of financial incentives for private and communal land that is formally protected.

He said on the economic front, the project aims to raise significant government funding for the restoration and maintenance of the landscape for water security, bringing much-needed employment opportunities to the area (through alien plant clearing and wetland restoration)... "and because of its rugged, unspoilt landscape, the area has rich potential for adventure and cultural tourism which could help to build an all-year-round tourism industry, further unlocking potential jobs. The declaration of a national park will also be a motivation for the inclusion of this area into the adjacent Drakensberg World Heritage Site".

This new proposed national park is a collaboration between SANParks and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). This will see a 30 000-hectare protected area that, once formally declared, will become South Africa's newest national park, significantly contributing towards the conservation of grasslands and water security.

Dr Morne du Plessis, CEO of WWF South Africa, said: "The beauty of this model is that biodiversity conservation and ecological management will be done in partnership with those who live and work in this area - while allowing them to continue deriving benefits from their land through sustainable agriculture and other compatible land uses. Ultimately this is a win-win - for nature and for people. We can't wait to see this project coming to fruition."

Poachers Get 105 Years Sentence in Prison

Zitat

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


The South African National Parks (SANParks) today, 3 September 2021 welcomed the sentencing of three rhino poachers to a total of 105 years in prison for rhino poaching and other offences by the Skukuza Regional Court prosecuting team on 2 September 2021. The three poachers were arrested in 2017 after killing three rhinos in the Marula (southern) section of the Kruger National Park. Two of the convicted poachers Accused 2 and 3, Shangani Mathebula and Emmanuel Mdhluli are from Mozambique; while Accused 1 Walter Hendrik Mangane is South African.

Whilst handing out the sentences, the magistrate explained in detail the manner in which the three poachers killed three rhinos in execution-style and were caught red-handed whilst in the process of plundering the animals. She asked Accused 1 to mend his ways as he had multiple cases which happened over 10 years ago in the KNP, was the oldest of the three at 58 of age; but had a negative influence on the communities and the youth as the other two accused are 29 and 32 years old.

Reacting to the sentences the Managing Executive of the KNP, Gareth Coleman congratulated the Environmental Crime Investigative Unit and Ranger Services for working closely with the Investigating Officer and the other South African Police Service Units to bring solid evidence before the court. He commended the Prosecuting Team for a stellar job in arguing for a stiff sentence and thanked the Rangers, Air Services and K9 Units for their swift reaction in apprehending the accused and ensuring that justice is served. "These sentences should serve as a deterrent to those intending to come and kill our natural heritage and destroying the livelihoods of our people. We have in the past few months intensified our security efforts in the Park to good effect but successful convictions require that the prosecutorial and justice pillars in our society are operating effectively. These sentences will motivate the teams who work tirelessly day and night to protect our fauna and flora," concluded Coleman.

SANParks Launches Reality Television Series

Zitat

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

South African National Parks (SANParks) today announced that it will be launching a 13 week Reality Television Series on 7 October 2021 at 21:30 on Mzansi Magic DSTV channel 161. Hosted by popular actress Rami Chuene and renowned life coach Romeo Mabasa, the series titled Away for Repair will showcase the heartfelt stories of ordinary people taking much-needed time away to mend broken bonds.

SANParks Managing Executive: Tourism Development and Marketing, Hapiloe Sello, said, "Away for Repair, will treat viewers to an emotional roller-coaster as four teams of two undergo a relationship boot camp against the spectacular backdrops of seven of South Africa's prime National Parks".

Through this series, we will be showcasing the diversity of our parks to the Mzansi Magic audience as well as the range of fun and educational activities available in these destinations. We also felt it important to emphasise the value of spending time in nature on emotional wellbeing - how the National Parks are places to escape to reconnect and revitalise hence the relationship boot camp theme.

Viewers will follow the series as we travel from the mysteries of Southern Africa's first ancient African Kingdom in the Mapungubwe National Park, to the rugged coastline and deep forested gorges of the Tsitsikamma National Park through to the iconic Kruger National Park. The series will see the teams compete in various adventures that will challenge them physically and mentally all in a bid to repair their broken bonds.

The teams include a pair of varsity friends dealing with a deep betrayal, sisters yearning for acknowledgement of past hurts, a married couple that has lost their foundation of trust and a mother and daughter in deep need of unlearning their toxic behaviours.

The winning team will win an all-expense paid weekend stay at the Skukuza Safari Lodge situated in the iconic Kruger National Park. The runners-up will walk away with an all-expense paid weekend getaway to Golden Gate Highlands National Park.

So make sure you watch Mzansi Magic on DSTV channel 161 on 7th October 2021 at 21:30. Episodes will broadcast every Thursday, with repeats on Saturdays at 10:30.
