At next week's Club Meeting on January 23rd we hope to have guest speaker Melissa Groenewald who will speak about a project to tag and track Secretarybirds in the Northern Cape and beyond. These splendid birds have recently been added to the endangered list, so it is vital we all play our part in protecting them to get them off that list.
Last week Secretarybird chicks on Dronfield and Rooifontein received their tracking devices. Here are a few photos (by Beryl and Trevor) capturing some secret moments in their lives, as well as the fitting of the devices. Those involved on the day include Beryl Wilson, Melissa Groenewald (ACSA), Andre Botha (EWT) Roland Timm (ACSA), Brian Culver, Ronelle Visagie (EWT) and Trevor Datnow.
