Local WRSA chapter hosts successful information day
GRAAFF-REINET — An information day on ‘Developing a Karoo game farm’ was recently hosted by Wildlife Ranching SA Karoo: Graaff-reinet Chamber in conjunction with Geo Wild on the Rietvlei Estate near Graaff-reinet.
WRSA is the national wildlife ranching organisation comprising individuals in the wildlife industry. The WRSA’S strength lies in its members including landowners with an interest in the game, game ranchers, professional hunters, hunting outfitters, taxidermists, game reserves and mixed farmers.
Organisers were very pleased with the turn-out on the day and noted what a perfect venue - as well as study case for the discussion of developing a new Karoo game farm - the historic farm Rietvlei of Richardt and Lyell van Rensburg turned out to be.
The new leadership for the organisation was also voted in at the meeting.
The new chairman for the WRSA Karoo: Graaff-reinet Chamber is Chris Nortje (Buccara Wildlife Reserve).
He will be supported by vice-chairman Katjana Hoskin Ott from Glenn Harry Game Reserve and marketing chairman Morne Terblanche from the Summit Wildlife Group.
