SIMPLE WAYS TO HELP TO CONSERVE OUR WILDLIFE IN MARLOTH PARK

SIMPLE WAYS TO HELP TO CONSERVE OUR WILDLIFE IN MARLOTH PARK

If we don’t conserve the soil we have no vegetation. Without vegetation we have no animal life.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE SWEEP OUR PROPERTIES BARE AND CLEAN?

  • We encourage snakes and scorpions and other less desirable visitors to seek shelter in our houses or verandas as there is no other cover nearby outside.
  • Pioneer plants (often weeds) take overto try to bind the soil and protect it from wind, sun, rain.
  • We lose the fallen leaveswhich help to keep moisture and nutrients in the soil and prevent over-heating of the ground. They also prevent weeds from taking hold.
  • We encourage soil erosion.

Care of Protected other trees: June 2015

THE CARE OF PROTECTED AND OTHER TREES

Trees and all other vegetation are precious resources in Marloth Park and we must do all we can to preserve them.  Generally speaking it is against the law to remove any tree from a property without obtaining formal permission from the Conservation Authority.

Protected trees: certain trees are protected under the National Forest Act, 1998 and may not be cut, damaged, destroyed or removed except under an exemption granted by the Minister. In Marloth Park these trees include:

Game Removal May 2015

A meeting was held in March 2015 at the municipal building in Marloth Park to discuss the 2015 game removal Program. Consensus was reached by all members present (NKLM, MTPA, Honorary Rangers, Conservancy, Marloth Wildlife Fund, Care 4 Marloth, MPPOA and a State Vet) on the need for drastic game reduction this year. Not only to prevent huge loss of game by starvation but also to give the veld in Marloth Park a chance to recover and rehabilitate.
