A group of Game Ranch Management and Nature Conservation Advanced Diploma students from the Nelson Mandela University in Port Elizabeth (Gqeberha) is on an educational tour to enrich their theoretical knowledge with practical experience.

They are studying the sustainable utilisation of game at the Addo campus, and Nature Conservation focussing on conservation and biodiversity at the George Campus and are accompanied by lecturers Prof Jan Venter, Dr James George Sekonya and Ms Leigh-Ann Kant.

This student tour covers both national and provincial parks as well as private wildlife ranches to allow students to gain on-the-ground knowledge and in-person experience from the managers and ranchers.

WRSA members, Barry and Richard York, private wildlife ranchers of Limpopo provided excellent mentorship gained by years of experience and innovative thinking fuelled by their love and passion for wildlife ranching and the development of the industry.

Visits to national and provincial parks such as Welgevonden Game Reserve, Pilanesberg National Park and Mokhala National Park are part of the tour and will ensure the exposure of the students to the various wildlife management models and in so doing, change their perspectives and create new conversations.
