What IS required is that domestic animals – dogs, cats, chickens, geese, sheep, horses, etc. – are not given free roaming in the Nature Reserve.  This means have your pets and your animals, but keep them fenced into your private area.  This protects the natural wildlife and the vegetation, and does not impose unreasonably restrictions on you.

Fence off your private area.  Fence off your entire property if you are not participating.  Keep your grazing animals on your own land.  You do not have the right to graze on someone else’s land.

If and when we decide to fence the perimeter, there will be benefits.  These include an outer boundary for security, and the ability to implement access control.  Some parts within the region already do so quite effectively.

The reason to stall on this decision is a practical one.  We do not yet have all the participation we are likely to get – and we don’t want to have to pay costs unnecessarily to keep moving fences.   We may also find that some areas want to participate by being behind the security fence, though not necessary part of the Nature Reserve (think of area like Laezonia).   We would need to consider how to make this possible.

Historic and Cultural Sites

Sites of special cultural value or historic significance are found in the Reserve. The geology includes the same belt of dolomite which occurs in the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site.
