Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife’s Acting CEO, Dr MD Mabunda and the leadership of HOSPERSA and NEHAWU have poured cold water on the actions of a handful of disruptive employees who last week Wednesday, 11 March 2015 attempted to hold the organization at ransom by organizing illegal picketing which was not supported by the Organized Labour.
The Rhino Protection Programme (RPP) collaboration between the Department of Environmental Affairs, South African National Parks, Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife (EZEMVELO) and Peace Parks Foundation - has committed R1.43-million to EZEMVELO to bolster the efforts of its wildlife veterinary teams who fight quietly beside conservationists and security forces at the frontlines of the rhino poaching war every day.
The Mangosuthu University of Technology (MUT) has become the first university in South Africa to offer a Post Graduate Diploma in Conservation. Addressing guests at the launch of the diploma, Sifiso Keswa, Manager: People and Parks at Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife, said the announcement represented a “hugely significant development” in the weight now being invested in the multi-facetted character of the overall conservation discipline.

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.
