Latest Cape and Bearded Vulture tracks


Dear All

Please find attached (Click here) the movements of our Bearded Vultures: Jeremia, Pharaoh, InkosiYeentaka, Lehlwa, Mac, Kloutjie, Camo and Mollie and our Cape Vulture, Bennie for the past week.

We were informed of a poisoning incident last week which on closer inspection revealed at least 20 Cape Vultures on two properties in the Free State. Many thanks to those that assisted with collecting the birds and investigating the incident. The purpose of the poisoning is not known but assumed to be predator control since a few dead dogs and jackal were also found. This incident is another reminder that we need to increase our awareness efforts and ensure landowners know that poisoning is illegal and alternative methods of predator control exist.

Kind regards
