With Icelandic volcanos behaving and cancelled flights now flying the Swaziland team have finally been able to get stuck into their project work in the Lubombo Conservancy reserves. We’re assured an update from the team will be winging its way through cyberspace shortly so keep do your eyes peeled. At present the team are taking a game ranger and bush interpretation course, learning to understand the environment around them and identify different species of flora and fauna. Highly useful skills as they will then be working in Mbuluzi Game Reserve, clearing alien invasive plant species, conducting ongoing giraffe surveys and undertaking general maintenance work. Other parts of the project will involve passing on their new-found knowledge and experience during an environmental education week at local Primary schools in the Shewula area.
Update from the team and photos to follow!
