Savage used for aerial survey in South Africa

Savage used for aerial survey of breeding sites of vultures and other large tree-nesting birds in the northern Kruger National Park, South Africa.

If you did not hear about it before, you might find it quite interesting: “The Bateleurs – Flying for the Environment in Africa”, is South African non-profit, non-governmental organisation (NGO) of pilot members, who give their aviation skills, the use of their privately-owned aircraft (more than 120!), and their time, in support of conservation and the environment in Africa.

The Bateleurs serves conservation and the environment by flying missions for conservation and the environment, free of charge, at the request of policy makers, scientists, community leaders, conservationists and environmentalists.

Among other aircrafts andf helicopters, the Savage serves for multiple missions, being really at home in the African environment.

Recently, it took part in an aerial survey program on behalf of The Endangered Wildlife Trust’s Birds of Prey Programme (BoP), which is one of the largest EWT Programmes and focuses on the conservation of diurnal and nocturnal raptors, vultures, and their habitats.

We always like to share those news, example and experiences, where passion merges with utility and solcial service, and a light aircraft like the Savage proves to offer an exceptional service at a low cost.
