Media Release: Camdeboo National Park embarks on fencing project

Date: 2013-11-18

Camdeboo National Park has started a project to replace approximately 21km of stock fencing with 2.4m high game fencing.  

Park Manager, Peter Burdett, says once the new fencing is complete, the park will initiate a programme of donating some of the old, remaining fencing materials to the residents of new  municipal homes which have recently been built in Graaff-Reinet.  It is hoped that this interaction with the community will lead to a reduction in the destruction of the park’s boundary by individuals who are selling the materials to the new home owners to fence their plots with.  

Section Ranger, Johannes Jaantjies, and park field rangers will be visiting new home owners in due course to establish their fencing needs and if needs be to recover any material which had been illegally removed from the park boundary.
