Media Release: KNP to demolish its artificial water holes

23 October 2012

“This is in line with the current approach to wildlife management in the park. KNP has been closing all artificial water points since the last five years” said the Head of Communication and Public Relations, Mr William Mabasa.

Artificial water holes where water did not previously occur have led to numerous ecological problems. This resulted in a negative consequence to the rare herbivore species such as roan and sable antelope. Conservation management has taken drastic steps to rectify these negative consequences by demolishing certain artificial water holes. These will be replaced by naturally occurring water holes in the area.
