Commentary for Last Quarter 2012
Missions featured in this Newsletter
In the fourth quarter of 2012 The Bateleurs flew six missions in total; three of these were for regular beneficiaries and three were for organisations that are new to us. Our missions included a flight to count Ludwigs Bustards in the Karoo, the eighth and last of our anti-rhino poaching patrols for 2012, a game count for the Anysberg Nature Reserve in the Western Cape, a count of all the hippos in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, a survey of tailings dams and mine dumps in and around Johannesburg, and a survey of sand mining operations along rivers on the North Coast of KwaZulu-Natal.
