PROTECTION UNIT RECEIVES NEW BICYLES FOR INCREASED PATROLS

BICYLESWith the increased attention on the rhino poaching battle Parque Nacional do Limpopo is pleased to have accepted the generous donation of 15 Qhubeka bicycles sponsored by Baden Bolling (7yrs) from the USA through the World Bicycle Relief organisation.

The hard wearing bicycles will be deployed at strategic locations along the border to extend the Parks rhino anti-poaching and snare patrolling capability. Bicycles will also be used along the newly constructed 56km South Eastern Barrier fence. The fence was erected to reduce Human Wildlife Conflict in the buffer zone of the Park and will be patrolled on a twice weekly basis to inspect and repair the fence to ensure its integrity.
