One of the Biggest Wildlife Relocations in History

The Peace Parks Foundation recently launched one of the biggest wildlife relocations in South African history.

Around 7500 animals will be relocated to a Mozambican park over the next 3 years. This park’s wildlife population was nearly destroyed by the civil war.

The owner of Sango Wildlife Conservancy in Zimbabwe, Wilfried Pabst, donated 600 animals, while a further 500 animals will be sourced from Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique.

The big move includes hundreds of eland, giraffe, impala, kudu, waterbuck, wildebeest, zebra and elephant. The rangers at Zinave Naational Park, which is described as an 18 500 hectare sanctuary, will be trained extensively to prevent poaching.
