Public Snare Walk – June 2024

June 15 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am

- ZAR50

Snaring has long been a problem in the Crocodile River Reserve and the surrounding areas. A sharp increase in this environmental crime has been experienced recently as people attempt to supplement their income through the bush meat trade in these financially trying times.

Although we can all sympathize with the struggle to make ends meet, besides being illegal, this is a particularly inhumane practice. An animal snared will die a slow and painful death, and even if rescued could loose a limb, severely hampering it’s ability to survive in the wild.

How can you help?

  • Join our monthly snare walks.
  • Adults donate R50 to join a walk, and all children joining are free!
  • Spend the day out in nature, getting some fresh air and saving lives!

What happens with all the ticket fees:

  • All money raised goes into a fund for veterinary services.
  • When we find an injured free roaming animal in the reserve, the vets are called in!
  • The vets often have to dart the injured animal in order to remove a snare safely.

What does it entail?

  • On each walk, we cover a different area of the reserve.
  • Our task for the morning is to scour the area for wire snare and traps.
  • When found, we dismantle and remove each snare before they injure more wildlife.
  • The regular removal of snares will stop the cruelty before it can even begin!

What should you bring?

  • Sunblock, hat, water, sturdy shoes.
  • It is recommended to wear long pants (as the grass makes you quite itchy).
  • Your cellphone, wire cutters or pliers and tick repellent if possible.
