Members of the public alerted Kabeljous Reserve Action Group (KRAG)volunteers yesterday morning about illegal gill nets in the Kabeljous lagoon bordering the reserve.
With the help of the Jeffreys Bay police and a sea fisheries official the nets were confiscated and the poachers were removed from the area.
“Thank you for this valuable information that helps to keep our reserve and surrounding area safe,” said KRAG on their facebook page.
The Kabeljous Reserve is well worth a visit and is home to bushbuck, duiker, bushpig, grysbok, caracal, mongoose and even 100 species of birds.
KRAG is a registered Non-Profit Organisation (NPO) that relies on public donations and volunteer workers to help maintain the Kabeljous Nature Reserve and make it accessible for everyone to enjoy.
