Welcome to the forum Ginzy
This is certainly an interesting report by some well respected scientists
But , the numbers mentioned do not necessarily make sense to me -- just call me an idiot that is not always easily convinced when someone starts waving numbers
You know , sometimes when I look at weather forecasts , then I often wonder if those who make these forecasts ever look out the window before they write up the forecast
For instance , Kruger NP covers an area of around 20 000 square kilometres , and to me ( idiot ) , it sounds somewhat absurd that the park should be able to sustain 50 000 elephants --- therefore 2,5 ellies for every 100 hectares of land in Kruger
Plus how many buffalo , plus how many zebra , and impala , etc etc .
Maybe those animals do not exist in a perfect ellie paradise
As I say , call me idiot , but IMHO , someone like to play with zero's .
Hmmmmmm......... I wonder how this report could encourage poaching
Last KNP visit November 2017 KTP - August 2017.
Next KNP visit -- Hmmm....still thinking
