A candelabra of Vultures in memory of our Rhinos #SaveOurRhino

#SaveOurRhino.

We have been privileged to see the return of the Vulture population to Madikwe Game Reserve over the last couple of years unfortunately it pinpoints the potential devastation of one of our most beloved and vulnerable species.

The sad reality is that Southern Africa and Madikwe Game Reserve is still under severe attack when it comes to the war being waged in Rhino poaching. This last week we saw the loss of two beautiful animals to this inhumane and sad event. Prior to 1991, the area where Madikwe Game Reserve is today consisted largely of degraded cattle farms. As the area was not running efficiently, Settlement Planning Services commissioned a feasibility study to establish the best use of this land. The study showed that the development of wildlife-based tourism in the area the creation of a game reserve would be most beneficial to local communities. What followed was the largest translocation project in the world – Operation Phoenix.

Over a period of seven years, Operation Phoenix reintroduced more than 8,000 animals of 28 species into the newly established Madikwe Game Reserve. The project achieved a number of world-firsts with entire herds of elephant being relocated and the reintroduction of African wild dog into a fenced reserve.

Operation Phoenix is world renowned as the largest and most successful reintroduction programme to date however without some serious help and intervention we stand a chance to loose one of its most iconic animals. The Madikwe Game Reserve Anti-poaching Unit and K9 Unit requires all the help and support they can get with regards to funding. Please contact us direct if you wish to contribute to this cause.
