Title: Transfrontier Conservation Area
Post by: emc on March 08, 2012, 02:33:49 PM
After 15 years working on getting South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Botswana to open their borders for a large conservation area, it is here.
The animals and rangers can cross the borders. Listen to the video, in part by Mashatu's Pete LeRoux

 Pete LeRoux is "the Pete" in Pete's Pond. Thought I should make that connection clearer.

Pete's Pond is located in the Mashatu Game Reserve, in south-eastern Botswana, Africa. The pond was initially set up by Pete Le Roux who at that time was, and still is the general manager of Mashatu Game Reserve. He created the pond as a watering hole in the hopes of protecting wildlife from poachers along the Limpopo River.

The reserve is located at the confluence of the Limpopo and Shashe Rivers adjacent to the country of Zimbabwe.
