St David Marist School from Inanda once again chose Walkerville this year as the area to carry out the pupils’ Community Hours projects.
The use of snares and traps is increasing in the area, placing small wildlife and domesticated animals in peril.
Four farms were approached to host a different group of scholars each day and the plan was to search the borders and fence lines for snares and traps.
The first day at Panorama Farm was more successful than anticipated, as the youngsters recovered a firearm that had been stolen in a burglary eight months ago.
Meals on Wheels Walkerville provided the pupils with lunch packs, and Ivan Parkes from the Gauteng Conservancy Association gave the participants informative talk.
