‘n Beskeie welwillendheidsgebaar van ‘n paar sakke mielies vir boere in die droogtegeteisterde Sutherland in die Noord-Kaap, het binne weke gegroei tot 480 ton voorraad om die ergste droogte in 'n lang tyd in hierdie streek te verlig. Tot dusver, word die totale waarde van die droogtebystand op R1,04 miljoen bereken, nadat die gemeenskap in die Overbergdistrik hul harte en beursies oopgemaak het.

During 2016, SA Hunters participated in the government-led Biodiversity Economy Lab that formed part of the results-driven Phakisa (hurry-up) programme aimed at addressing poverty, unemployment and inequality through accelerated economic growth. Three focus areas received attention, namely Marine and Coastal Tourism, Bioprospecting, and the Wildlife Economy. This report focuses on the wildlife economy that contributed approximate 3% to the national GDP, growing annually by an average of 9,3% from 2008 to 2014, which is much higher than the meagre 1,8% per annum for the general economy during the same period. This demonstrates that wildlife and the hunting sector as one of the largest contributors to the wildlife economy, can contribute substantially to socio-economic development in the country.

Lood is ‘n swaar metaal wat in die natuur voorkom in lae konsentrasies en wat geen voordeel inhou vir die menslike liggaam nie. Inteendeel, verhoogde loodbloedvlakke kan lei tot ernstige afwykings in terme van die senuwee-, spysverterings- en voortplantingstelsel en dit affekteer ook sommige organe direk, veral die urienweg en niere. Loodbloedvlakke van 3 µg/dL (mikrogram lood per desiliter bloed) of 0.000003g/100ml, word as normaal beskou in die algemene volwasse bevolking, met 10 µg/dL wat gesien word as kommerwekkend en permanente gesondheidskade wat plaasvind by 80 µg/dL). Die gepaardgaande gesondheidsrisiko’s vir die mens is veral sterk by, kinders, swanger vroue en vroue wat beplan om kinders te hê, en hierdie is ook die mees kwesbare groepe. Loodbloedvlakke bo 5 µg/dL word reeds as kommerwekkend hoog beskou.

Dit is algemeen bekend dat Brandsiekte onder diere soos wildsbokke en vee voorkom. In die wolbedryf is brandsiekte ‘n ernstige en aanmeldbare siekte waarvoor boere op die uitkyk moet wees en betyds skape moet behandel om enstige ekonomiese skade te voorkom. Dit is egter grootliks onbekend of roofdiere ook brandsiekte kan opdoen en is daar al in die Karoo en Limpopo rooijakkalse met brandsiekte waargeneem.

Wildstropery, oftewel onwettige jag, is een van vele uitdagings waarmee wildboere daagliks te doen kry. Hoewel die stroop van Suid-Afrika se renosterbevolking wêreldwyd opslae maak weens die geweldige impak wat dit op die voortbestaan van hierdie bedreigde spesies het, loop baie  ander wildspesies ook deur onder stropers.

Jagters en natuurliefhebbers van die Springs-omgewing in Gauteng, het onlangs ses gevlekte ooruile, tien skilpaaie en twee blouvalkies op ’n wildplaas in die Cullinan-distrik in die natuur hervestig. Dit maak deel uit van ‘n omvattende bewaringsprojek waarmee die Springbok-tak van die Suid-Afrikaanse Jagters- en Wildbewaringsvereniging (SAJWV) al sedert 2010 besig is.

Die boswêreld het ‘n paar goed wat die boere se humeure goed laat opvlam: rooijakkalse, wilddiewe en bosluise. Vir eersgenoemde is daar min raad want alles wat al probeer is het tot dusvêr net die rooijakkalse meer professioneel gemaak en vir wilddiewe is daar ook nie veel raad nie. Ongelukkig vir die bosluise het die boere hulle sonder enige moeite al amper gewen net omdat Moeder Natuur ‘n bondgenoot beskikbaar gestel het: renostervoëltjies. Hierdie klein wonderwerkies het al menige wild en beesboer se aanslag teen die bosluise ondersteun en in so ‘n mate dat sommige boere amper nooit hulle diere hoef te behandel teen bosluise nie.
