A group of 48 suspected abalone poachers are expected to appear in court on Monday after they were arrested in the Garden Route National Park, in the Western Cape. SANParks says its rangers and police arrested the group and confiscated 142 kilograms of abalone.

Chief Executive Officer at SANParks, Fundisile Mketeni thanked the rangers, Cape Nature and the South African Police Service for a job well done.

“Our organization is part of local policing forums in the Garden Route towns, as a result, we are able to fight poaching as a collective,” said Mketeni.
