This monthly report covers the period from 1 April to 30 April 2022.
The Voëlklip Troop made two incursions into the urban area during the middle of April, with individuals gaining access to town on two more occasions. Similarly, individuals from the Vogelgat Troop were recorded in the urban area on six occasions during April, with two occupied house incursions being recorded. The use of the Virtual Fence was increased along the Voëlklip urban edge in the latter part of the month in response to the presence of the Vogelgat Troop. It is worth noting that whilst several individuals accessed the urban area during April, the troop as a whole remained in its natural habitat outside of the town. There were no recorded observations of the Hamilton-Russell Troop during April, however the Onrus Troop was reported to have been seen in the vicinity of the Brewery at Glen Fruin, Sandbaai.
