Lubango — The reinforcement of inspection, signalling some areas, as well as implementation of iodized salt in the lakes is enabling the massive return of some animals that disappeared during the war, in the National Park of Bicuar, Huila province.
The information was given Monday to ANGOP in Lubango, by the park administrator, Jose Maria Kandungo, to whom these measures are to allow the return of herds of elephants on a large scale, zebras, lions, cheetahs and leopards.
He pointed out the peace as another factor that facilitates the return of the animals in the areas bounded by the park, including the municipalities of Quipungo, Matala and Gambos, which have a stable reproduction of the same process.
The administrator also reported that the management of the park, in partnership with the Department of Natural Science's Institute of Higher Education of Lubango (ISCED), has been investigating the whereabouts of the "pet park", the Red Buffalo, still missing.
With 7,900 km2 length, the park of Bicuar was created in 1953 with the aim to protect and defend diverse wildlife. It borders the municipalities of Quipungo, Matala and Gambos.
