92 more wildebeest arrive in Pilanesberg, bringing the total to over 200 with another 200 to come still. The capture team came with this time for this release. Capturing game takes a lot more people than releasing the game, and tons more time and planning. You really need to be thorough to be sure you do not lose any animals in the capture.

Today we off-loaded another 59 wildebeest into Pilanesberg National Park. This brings the total to 110. It’s great to be there and watch the new arrivals rush into the park. One little one was a little stressed and gave us the run around for awhile.
