It is 600 and counting for these bush heroes

Leopard crawling is part of the job of wire-snare removal as Mr Ian Macdonald can attest.

NELSPRUIT – A weekend for these guys consists of leopard crawling through thick brush, armed with pliers and gloves. Since it started its voluntary and free community service, the Mpumalanga Animal Crime Watch (MACW) has achieved noteworthy success in its anti-poaching efforts.

Founder member, Mr JK Klopper is excited about the group’s successes so far. “We are in phase two of MACW’s planning and will hopefully soon be operating on a day-to-day basis. We would like to thank each and everyone for the overwhelming support,” he expressed his optimism about the future of the group.
