Kyalami conservancy mapped- 19 August 2013
KYALAMI – The Greater Kyalami Conservancy is being mapped to justify why development should not take place in the area.
The conservancy spans the area of Kyalami within the perimeter of the Jukskei River which separates Lonehill and Glenferness, Main Road to the R55, Summit Road and the R511.
The conservancy’s Tyrone Mckendry is in the process of compiling the biodiversity of the area. “I expected to find degraded grass, not egoli granite grass. I expected to see only garden birds as wildlife, not black backed jackals. I soon realised that this area was worth conserving and collecting biodiversity data was worth doing,” said Mckendry.
He appealed for residents to lend their help to his project by informing him of sightings of animals. Sighting report forms are available on the conservancy’s website or sightings can be documented on Gekco Biodiversity on Facebook.
