Re: [botswanapredatorforum] impacts of use of poisons on wildlifeDoes anybody have any information on the Ghantzi road fence?? I am aware that a few years ago, some organisation (WCS??) sponsored a EURO 5 million study looking at the wildlife corridor between CKGR and KTP, and worked with the communities in those areas. I think ex DWNP director Mr Sedia Modisa was involved. Anyway, there is now a double bonnox fence with barbed wire running on both sides of the Jwaneng to Ghantzi road, which is a fairly effective barrier to wildlife movement in these areas I am sure. The fence, by its markings is not simply near villages but is marked or being constructed in the WMas too. A few questions. I thought that some vestiges of a migratory route for the few wildebeeste left in CKGR moves across between Sekgoma and Kang. I have seen wild dogs, lion and cheetah crossing this section of road in the last 10 years, as well as Hartebeeste and Springbok? Why is the reserve not being fenced with normal barbed wire. A five strand barbed wire fence inhibits cattle but not wildlife?? Dos DWNP know of the existence of this fence, and was the WCS?? study made available to the roads department?? This to me seems another study done, and placed on a shelf to retain dust and not be shared between ministries??
