The Marlothii Conservancy

The Marlothii Conservancy is registered with the Mpumalanga Parks Board as an Urban Conservancy and was the first in Mpumalanga to do so. It aims to generate interest and active participation by registered land owners, accredited residents and the business community in the conservation of indigenous and endemic fauna and flora and the protection of the environment in the area based on scientific principles of nature conservation and sustainable utilization of the area's natural resources. The Conservancy exists in partnership with the Marloth Park Honorary Rangers and the Marloth Park Property Owners Association. You can see our registration certificate by clicking here and read a brief historical note by clicking here.

The Ralf Kalwa Presentation on Veld Rehabilitation
Saturday 22
nd November 2014.

The Rakf Kalwa presentation was excellent, drawing comparisons to our much larger neighbour, the Kruger NP. Emphasising how much more sensitive our little closed reserve is to even small changes. The Ben Orban Report will still form the basis for management of our micro ecosystem over the next 5, 10, 20 years, which will require an active, adaptive veld management system. The Marloth Park Forum (consisting of Honorary Rangers,Marlothii Conservancy and MPPOA) will be putting together an easier to follow forward plan for all property owners to follow with regards to fixing our veld and its carrying capacity. 

 

Their subsequent reports will guide us in how to achieve autonomy, once we have established what type of nature reserve/wildlife estate the majority of us want. How successful this will be is down to all of us. Does supplementary feeding hold value or not? Do we have multiple water points or just a few main ones? Each of these decisions will have a major bearing on the eventual outcome. Many factors need to be taken into account, not least our fast growing human footprint!!

We embrace all measures that support the conservation,
preservation and protection of indigenous flora and fauna
