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.

Chairman’s Report – October 2014

 

On animal capture/harvesting our aim is to preserve the ecology and wildlife in Marloth Park and Lionspruit and we are opposed to hunting in Marloth Park and Lionspruit. Removal of Impala and Warthog should be our priority. Several Mature Kudu have died and at least one Giraffe has been killed.

A superb photo of a Leopard feeding on a dead Giraffe in Lionspruit

was taken probably by a camera trap.
