game capture is essential to
The industry of game capture is essential to the continued existence and conservation of species
endemic to South Africa. Through careful handling of rare and endangered species and general
game, restocking of new areas and population diversity is retained.
It is also of huge economic benefit to the country and local employment. Game captures ensure a
positive impact to both wildlife and local communities. Often subject to the whims of the elements,
especially the wind, and of course the animals themselves; it is an industry that needs to be
handled with flexibility.
It involves the captures of herd animals like antelopes and zebra which involve mass captures in
net enclosures, while larger species like buffalo and rhino are darted and sedated. Some captures
need the assistance of a helicopter.
The process of game capture is of paramount importance to the well-being and safety of wildlife.
From the weather conditions, to their surroundings; every element plays a huge role when it
comes to capturing and releasing of game.
