National Parks phoned Richard Maasdorp last night rather distressed about the buffalo that are stranded on two different islands near Mana.
The one island opposite Chikwenya has 80 Buffalo on , the other is called something like Nyakasula – it is opposite Ncupi Camp at Mana, that has approx 200 buffalo on it.
The animals have young and could not swim back to mainland initially because of the young, but now they are too weak as well.
Parks have seen that some animals are dying now.
They are desperate to save the animals.
It will be a temporary mission.
The gates at Kariba are going to close mid next week we are told.
The situation has only just come to Richard’s attention and he would be very happy with anyone prepared to help?
Students on Varsity vac?
The idea is to get hay delivered to either Karoi, Mana turn off, Mana itself or Chikwenya itself.
Parks I am sure have boats that will take the hay across to the islands.
How can you help?
1.If you know where to get hay from write to firstname.lastname@example.org
2. If you have a truck and can help transport hay - write to the same email address.
3. If you can help with money and can’t help with trucks and hay or time – round up the dollars amongst your mates and contact Richard on the above email address.
