Road clearing: conservation project- South Africa   (published in South Africa)

October 26, 2010 by   Comments(0)

Road clearing is one of our regular activities, a hard job that requires patience and stamina. We make regular trips along most of the roads inside Legodimo, sometimes just to get somewhere but also for research drives to count game. This last becomes a little more difficult if there are always branches and leaves brushing against the car: many of them have spikes on so the volunteers are distracted whilst trying to get out of the way, but also the sound can disturb the wildlife, giving them advance warning that we are approaching and causing them to disappear before we can spot them. After many hours of activity since the beginning of the year, we have managed to complete the clearing along the ‘Long Loop’ research drive route, giving us a much more peaceful ride and allowing us to spot animals in their natural environment without disturbing them.
