Thank you for helping to prevent poaching. We pleased to announce that our anti-poaching project, with your support, has been successful lately.
No poaching has been experienced at our Sanctuary for some time now and this means that our efforts are proving worthwhile. Clearing fence lines, regular day and night patrols, cams to help surveillance, and careful monitoring have helped. Without your support, this would not be have been possible as the cost of our night guards and day patrols that ensure our wildlife’s safety have been, and continue to be ongoing challenges. The work that this provides for Rural persons is greatly appreciated by them as each worker financially assists up to 10 extended family members.
We have also ensured that our wildlife has sufficient feed during the dry winter months. There has not been much rain but we provide supplemental feed for our much-loved zebra and wildebeest. This also enables us to check on them each evening (and sometimes during the day) when they come up to their feeding area from their grazing areas in the dryer grass plains. The other wildlife species at Suni-Ridge are all browsers or mixed feeders and they continue to find sustenance in the foliage of our forest vegetation. We do however also assist nature by lowering some branches, as elephant would do, of the forest trees to ensure that babies of the browsers are able to reach new shoots and leaves.
The safety of our wildlife remains an important priority at Suni-Ridge and we continue to compassionately care for all our species and also protect the vast biodiversity of our Wildlife Sanctuary.
Some super great news is that the new male zebra that we have been waiting for, that was delayed by Lockdown, is to be arriving at last, on Monday 21 September!
Thank you to each and everyone that has so kindly supported our beautiful wildlife and the protection of the Biodiversity of Suni-Ridge.
