South African National Environmental Shoulders responsibility
S of the Kruger National Park in South Africa the biome is characterized by conservation of savanna and the layers of soils e.g. a grassy ground layer and distinct upper layer of woody biomes, the upper layer known as Shrubveld and where it is dense, Woodland. The intermediate stages are locally known as Bushveld. Geographical aspects highlight the lakes and waters, ravines and dominence of vegetation types considered effectively preserved and where provided, sustainable stocking levels as below, are maintained. The creatures pinpointed near the location of the Numbi gates are beautiful and the importance of tourism and big game viewing in the conservation of the area cannot be underestimated. Most of the animals are adept at keeping their habitat near important water sources and the Booted Eagle managed to conspicuously perch where it could track smaller rodents who caught the alert eagle's attention that were unprotected and where the Eagle had a quick exit route to swoop. The colour morph of the Booted Eagle is dark brown with notorious white 'shoulder bar'.
