On 18 February 2019 a team of over 40 people, including ecologists, student-rangers, vets and a helicopter pilot helped to select and move a number of buffalo destined for new beginnings on other nature reserves.

Charles Hall, Dronfield nature reserve manager, said, “The buffalo will ultimately be moved to stock Rooipoort Nature Reserve near Kimberley and Venetia Limpopo Nature Reserve near Musina. This forms part of the De Beers conservation and environmental diversity strategy.”

FiND iT, accompanied the team in the veld. A number of buffalo were darted and extreme care was taken not to separate calves from mothers.

Wiaan van der Linde and Dr. Emma Rambert from Wintershoek Safaris helped with the darting and loading of the animals. Danie Victor was the pilot.

Piet Oosthuizen, senior manager of De Beers ecology division, Dr. Corné Anderson, manager of bio-diversity and conservation as well as Carina Brits, capture coordinator, were also involved.
