Mathathane — Construction of the Terra Conservancy-financed electrified Tuli backline fence is a direct response to the Ministry of Environment, Natural Resources Conservation and Tourism national elephant management plan, says Minister Philda Kereng.
The fence bars wild animals from encroaching into human spaces while simultaneously prohibiting livestock from crossing into privately owned land and also helps curb poaching.
Speaking at a ground breaking ceremony for the 30km-fence near Mathathane Saturday, Ms Kereng said its construction was the first phase of a long-term plan to curb human-elephant conflict.
