Peterhouse Game Capture and Translocation 2021

At Peterhouse we learn by doing and what an experience our Learner Hunter Guides got.

As the Gosho Park animal populations have steadily increased over the years it was agreed that some needed to be translocated.

There was much excitement as a professionally organised game capture took place earlier this month, whereby 30 impala and six wildebeest were moved across to Calderwood Park to supplement the populations there. A helicopter arrived to help with the move and animals were herded into the lorry with the help of some of our Learner Guides who kept a good eye on them.

The animals seem to have settled well and we hope that in time they will breed to increase the population at Calderwood Park.
