The Mwabvi Wildlife Reserve Fence
The Fence around Mwabvi Wildlife Reserve is our exciting new project for 2010 - 2011. We need to protect the animals that still live in Mwabvi, and will also be re-introducing other game into this safe and protected wildlife reserve.
The fence will be a 2.6 meter high game fence with a 5 strand offset electrification, which will enable us to keep the BIG 5 in the reserve. The electrification of the fence will be from solar powered units evenly located along the fence line.
The fence will perform two roles and these are to protect the local communities from the predators that will be released in the wildlife reserve, as well as protecting the game and our mopane/vegetation trees from poachers entering the reserve.
