New Lease On (wild) Life

Geoffrey is a doer. He gets going. He has run an indigenous nursery in an industrial area for decades, he ran an Olde Heritage Shoppe for years, he built a pond in a park (a donation to the people of Westville), he has a lovely young (much younger!) wife and two ugly old dogs.
Recently he decided to re-introduce bushbuck into the Palmiet Nature Reserve and – typically – got off his butt. I would have talked about it.
So this week (18 months after he decided to launch “Operation Nkonka”) we were in the Palmiet watching five beautiful bushbuck (three does and two males – “nkonka” is isiZulu for male bushbuck) jump out of the back of the truck and explore their new home.

Later four more were released. Soon we’ll be fawning over their offspring, we hope!
