NKOMAZI MUNICIPALITY GAME AND FIELD RANGERS OFFLOADED DONATED GAME FEED.
Early on Thursday April 30 2015, a truck arrived in Marloth Park with game feed donated by Wild Life Pharmaceuticals, the company appointed to do the game capture.
The Nkomazi Rangers offloaded the feed and took the first lot to the two capture sites. They will be controlling the distribution and putting out the feed daily.
The poor condition of the veld means that the grazers, in particular, need feeding prior to the game capture taking place. There has been a delay due to the need for transport permits to move animals to Mozambique.

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.
