  • Rain and enforced leave of 2 weeks for the EPWP team have effected productivity this month.
  • Rebuilding another boma for the capture the hippo and her calf to be returned to Rondevlei.
  • The WESSA students have been receiving work related and bird ID training.
  • P8 is clear of hyacinth. P1 and P3 the largest and longest infested are next. CFWWTW have donated an excavator and 2 dump trucks for work to start on these pans.
  • Very high water levels in the pans are due to the rain. Not ideal for the waders which are starting to arrive.

See what we did this month.
