Magnificent Bearded Vulture in decline from lead bullets and poison baits!
People often query the impact of the individual effort. What can be achieved when conservation confronts weighty macro impacts such as development, harmful agricultural practices, traditional medicine usage etc.?
The horrors and demands of rhino poaching aside, Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife demonstrated many acts of passion and professionalism during 2014 that again fulfilled the belief the organisation remains at the very forefront of a number of conservation disciplines in South Africa.
The collection of people said a great deal. At a time when social gatherings of conservation staff are rare, 60-odd friends and colleagues came from throughout KZN - Underberg, Tembe Elephant Park, Durban, Pietermaritzburg and the South Coast - to bid Ed Ostrosky farewell.
On its own, the recent donation by the US Department of State in South Africa of a 4 x 4, ‘crime scene’ trailer to Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife (‘Ezemvelo’) in Pretoria was a generous and highly practical gift.
The coincidence is deeply ironic. At a time when people in South Africa and worldwide reflect on the loss of one of the world’s most celebrated conservationists, Dr Ian Player, frantic efforts are being made to save one of his finest achievements; the establishment of the Wilderness area of iMfolozi Park inside KZN’s premier Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park (HiP).
