  • Bob Marley the hippo, was finally caught and translocated to his new home near Mossel Bay.
  • There is still another hippo in S1 pan. Please obey the rules stay out of the area.
  • The EPWP staff members have started to cut all the vegetation from the island in S7. We are going to convert it into a new heronry and fingers crossed get some breeding going soon.
  • We are still having serious issues with the trespassing quad bikers.
  • We currently have some WESSA students working at Strandfontein, they getting stuck into field work and have received training in bird identification and ecological principles.

See what we did this month.
