RANGER COMMUNITY SPACE: KAPIRINHENGU
NEW RANGER COMMUNITY SPACE WITH TV – KAPIRINHENGU FIELD STATION
Rangers based at Kapirinhengu now have a brand new TV and DSTV channels to enjoy in any off-time they may have between their patrols in the rugged mountains and rivers of Chewore North. Small refurbishments were undertaken to a space in an existing dwelling at Kapirinhengu, making it safe and brightened up with a few coats of paint. SOLAR POWER was installed on site as well as the TV dish, and a solar inverter and components neatly installed inside the room, provided with power, switches and lights. As one team member wrote: “Everyone here is smiling. We have been watching soccer – people are pleased!”.
Thanks to the CITES MIKES project, funded by the European Union for this valuable support to the morale of Rangers, risking their lives to protect Zimbabwe’s wildlife.
