The South African National Parks (SANParks) has asked visitors to respect the owls, particularly at this crucial time in their life cycle.
According to SANParks, visitors should avoid the proximity in which the owls are breeding, and also keep their dogs on a leash in the area to avoid injury to both owls and dogs.
In a Facebook post, Parkscape said: “We kindly request that all dogwalkers please leash and control their dogs when on the field and to please prevent their dogs from harassing the owlets – this applies particularly to all those dogwalkers who park in Hawthorne Close, but equally to anyone who walks their dogs on the field.”
Meanwhile, SANParks said it will also tighten up safety and security at Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) after it indicted the first of its kind Sea, Air and Mountain (SEAM) Special Operations Ranger team at a pass-out parade in Cape Town on Friday, December 3.
According to a statement issued by SANParks, delegates from SANParks, funders, Honorary Rangers, TMNP Park Forum members and representatives from US Fisheries and Wildlife Services, gathered at Newlands Forest to honour the SEAM Special Operations Rangers and the K9 unit at the pass out parade as they embark on their improved mission to combat crime within TMNP.
