Historically we used the collected fire ash from bungalows in our composting, when processing the waste in the Dirt Box. Sadly this "composting" opportunity is no longer available to management because the majority of ash bins are filled with all sorts of other refuse.
Your attention is drawn to the misuse of steel ashbins. An increasing trend in Camp is to deposit waste, other than ash, in receptacles dedicated to store ash. The result is that baboons tip the ashbins, in turn attracting monkeys, warthogs and mongooses to investigate further. Add the prevailing winds to the equation and you have a camp environment strewn with litter.
All Users are reminded to please secure your bungalows when not in occupation. It is interesting to note how often bungalows are vacated after occupation where windows are left open and doors are not locked. In addition, the baboons have learned how to open sliding doors; please, even these doors need to be secured.
Recently there have been a number of concerns raised over changing hyena and baboon behaviour in camp. This appears to be as a result of an increase in the general feeding of animals. Neither species show any fear/caution towards humans.
