Markus Hofmeyr
Born in Johannesburg, Markus went to veterinary school with the objective of getting into wildlife. During university years he worked as a guide in Pilanesberg National Park and during holidays at various game reserves. After qualifying as a vet, Markus worked at a variety of practices and went to Canada for few months where he gained some North American wildlife experience. Back in South Africa, a stint in exotic animal medicine (dealing with birds, monkeys, and snakes) was an important step for him. In 1995, Markus got his break in the wildlife industry when he was employed in Madikwe Game Reserve- where at that time the largest animal translocation in the world was taking place. In the five years he spent there, he gained a tremendous amount of ecological, veterinary, and management experience in wildlife translocations and the running of a large game reserve. From there he moved to the Kruger National Park where he currently holds the position of Principal Scientist- Veterinary Services. One career highlight has been his involvement with the re-introduction of the endangered African Wild Dog into Madikwe Game Reserve. The experience gained with the work done in Madikwe has improved the knowledge of wild dogs, and has been used extensively in other introductions of wild dog elsewhere in South Africa.

"This is exactly what we've been doing for the last 30 years," said Markus Hofmeyr, head of veterinary services at Kruger about this latest round of relocations.

Dr. Markus Hofmeyr, head of Kruger's veterinary wildlife services, wrote the standard operating procedure for culling: you start with a brain shot from a helicopter with a high-caliber weapon, not less than a .375.

Also on the helicopter flight, sponsored by South Africa's Peace Parks Foundation, was an excited Dr Markus Hoftmeyr, head of Kruger's veterinary wildlife services.
He believes that the elephants are signalling each other, sometimes in sounds that carry far but are inaudible to the human ear, that it is safe to return to their old stomping grounds in the Mozambican area now that the war is over and it no longer serves as a hunting place or as a "bushmeat" abattoir for guerrilla fighters.

As the sun began to rise, they headed for the Skukuza bomas, where Kruger Park Wildlife Veterinarian, Dr. Markus Hofmeyer, together with Kruger's Game Capture Unit, were preparing to dart a white rhino and load her into a crate for relocation to Marakele National Park.
From the safety of the vehicle, the children patiently waited for the rhino to be darted. Once the animal was sedated, they were allowed to move closer. As the kids grouped around the rhino, Markus explained the meaning of animal translocation and the problems of poaching. The children were then given the opportunity to touch the rhino, to feel her horn, and to discuss the importance of preserving their natural heritage.
