Verreaux's Eagles in the Conservancy
The Birds Of Prey Working Group of the Endangered Wildlife Trust has a current project in the Meyersdal area of the Conservancy. This has involved the establishment of a nesting platform to accommodate a pair of Verreaux's Eagles that had been nesting in electricity pylons in the vicinity.
