Ecosystems Projects

Sound Ecological management is fundamental in the successful running of a game farm. It has been said that we are in fact farming with the habitat and by ensuring that the habitat stays in a good condition, a healthy base is formed for optimal animal production.

How do we ascertain the current habitat condition of a particular farm? It can only be done through regular monitoring. EKO WILD has been doing ongoing habitat monitoring in the Bushveld ecosystem and our clients value our recommendations and continuously approach us for expert advice and guidance.
