Three employees of the Northern Cape department of tourism, environment and nature conservation who have been involved in efforts to preserve the flamingos of Kamfer’s Dam in Kimberley have been placed on “precautionary suspension”, the Diamond Fields Advertiser reports. Mark Anderson an ornithologist, Julius Koen, the deputy director of conservation, and Eric Hermann, from scientific services have been suspended and an investigation will take place regarding “complaints received about the alleged role individuals played in the flamingo saga both privately and as employees of the department”, the report says.
