SA Crane Working group met during March

The South African Crane Working Group (SACWG) held a workshop Baberspan, in the North West Province, during March.

During the past two years, the SACWG - a working group of the Endangered

Wildlife Trust (ETW) - has been conducting a farm worker awareness programme

across South Africa in all key crane areas. The programme is run differently in each region, based on skills and available resources to each field officer. The project is ongoing and will take several years - at least five - before a noticeable and measurable behavioral change can be expected from the farm worker target group. There are countless threats to cranes therefore it is almost impossible to quantify the number of cranes removed from the wild, either for food or illegal trade. Thus it is very difficult to measure or assess whether cranes are dying or being negatively affected more at hands of farm workers than to other listed threats. In addition, it is impossible to measure whether fewer chicks have been removed from the wild since the inception of the project. Poverty and a lack of protein in farm workers? diets ? apart from illegal

trading ? are often underlying factors behind the deliberate killing of cranes. Creating incentives (food, money, personal recognition, study opportunities, etc.) will result in the fact that the crane will become less attractive as food. Due to the lesser number of birds found in the North West Province, the situation could not yet been determined there. Field Officers are now identifying and mentoring outstanding individuals (Crane Custodians) at workshops. Through these crane custodians and landowners, the responsibility of crane conservation is being put into the hands of the farm workers and landowners who will be actively involved by recording sightings of cranes on the farms.  To date, a large number of school children and farm workers ? throughout South Africa - have been exposed to cranes through the extensive workshops carried out over the past two years. The project undergoes regular review and each region has its unique successes, failures and constraints. Regions involved in the SACWG, are: Eastern Cape, KwaZulu Natal, Highlands, Mpumalanga, Wakkerstroom, Overberg, Northern Cape, North West Province, Orange Free State, Western Cape and Northern Cape. During the workshop, held from 18 to 20 March 2002 at Baberspan, the first custodian boards were handed over to farmers in the area. Kerryn

Morrison, Chair and National Project Manager, briefly stated the criteria for

awarding farmers with the custodian boards:

  • Land owners (farmers) who house cranes.
  • Land owners who report sightings of crane on their land and act as census takers.
  • Land owners who play a prominent role in the conservation and protection of cranes. Morrison and Sampie van der Merwe said that cranes were found on the private land of Poena Basson, Johan Schutte, Gerrie Maritz, Jan de Kock and Frans Schutte, farming at Baberspan. The five boards are the first of its kind in the particular area. Morrison thanked the farmers, and the local community, for their care and dedication.   Information regarding the SACWG can be obtained
