Snare eradication project

Oct 9, 2020 | Projects, Snare Eradication

The Rotary Club of Kenton on Sea has been involved in a snare eradication project since the very early days of our existence (2009), and has been done in partnership with the Assegaai Conservancy.

Because of Covid there has been a bit of a break in the regular monthly visits, but the programme has now started again. 7 areas of footpaths and trails, including Merry Hill, were walked and checked by game guard Hunter, and Rotarian Will.

They were lucky enough to see a Bushbuck ram, 2 Grysbok and 2 Blue Duiker – most of them in the Joan Muirhead Reserve which runs along Coniston Road.

A total of 3 snares were found and removed, all made from wire which made them easier to detect than the fishing gut sometimes used by the poachers.
