Annual Rangers Meeting

Kruger Park News Archive

The Park's rangers met for their annual meeting at Letaba Rest Camp from February 9 to 10, 2006. It was an opportunity to avail themselves of the latest developments on issues that affect their day-to-day activities and to thrash out the best or most viable options available.

Navashni Govender updated them on the fire management policy, while Sandra McFadyen advised all on the latest about the Cybertracker and answered questions to clarify uncertainties.

Other issues on the agenda were weather monitoring, disease surveillance, alien plants, ranger reports and diaries and then internal issues such as ranger gradings, transfers, recruitment and selection and operational responsibilities. A number of rangers have been transferred to different sections.
