Landbou Radio – 12 May 2022

The Kruger National Park is under threat, not by drought. Currently the Kruger Park hosts more than 42 000 elephants on an extended trans frontier park of 4 million ha, that is a density of 94 ha per elephant. Elephant harmony with nature is at a density of more than 800 ha per elephant. Destruction of biodiversity and ecosystems exponentially increase once elephant density exceeds 1 elephant per 550 ha for optimal bushveld woodland habitat. In our program of 12 May, Deon Furstenburg, Specialist Ecologist and Zoologist of Agri Wild Services talks about this major problem and shares information on scientific studies that proves that the biodiversity and ecosystems in the Kruger Park is in an ecological crisis.

Gerhard Heyneke, Chairman of WRSA updates us on the latest news in the wildlife industry of South Africa and shares some information on their upcoming general annual meeting.

Ankie Stroebel, Marketing and membership Manager at the WRSA talks about the role women play in the wildlife industry.
