Wildlife college for North West

This will hopefully assist in attempts to curb poaching, especially rhino poaching in the province.

“A group of 40 young people recruited last year is about to start their training as game rangers, and will upon completion be deployed to various game parks across the province, this in pursuit of tight security,” said the MEC for the Department of Rural, Environment and Agricultural Development, Manketsi Tlhape.

The location of the college is to be announced soon.

According to Tlhape five rhinos were poached in government-owned parks and four from private parks in the province during December alone.

“The need for us to work closely with communities alongside the parks in co-managing and strengthening security in our game parks cannot be over-emphasised. It remains our collective responsibility as government and the society to bring poaching in our parks to an end,” she said.

Tlhape urged members of the community to report poaching incidents to the police for investigation.
