Askari Wilderness Conservation Programme
***CONSERVATION IN ACTION***It has been an exciting past month as we have created a new wilderness area within Pidwa..Langa langa and Pidwa east were both previously cattle farms but we have been working for many years to return them to their natural state. We were doing that separately but now....they are joined! The fences are down and together they make a new 5000 hectare wilderness area 🥳..A fencing team removed the main fence but Askari have been working to help Assistant manager Andrew remove more fence poles. So far we fought 26 wooden posts out the ground, about another 40 to go!.The removal of this 5km stretch of fence puts an end to habitat fragmentation along this pristine section of the Selati River. Next up.....a river crossing to link the 2 sections so we can explore our new area! #askariwcp ... See MoreSee Less
