No idea what the idea is behind the recent, ongoing work at the EP and NK waterholes is intended to accomplish, but whatever the intention the berms would seem to make it nigh impossible for giraffe to drink without actually stepping into the water. It's going to be interesting to watch what happens.
Hello Fligh. The work is ongoing. As we speak, they are taking the dirt away at EP. NK needed a smaller waterhole to conserve precious water. The brush put over the filled-in finger at NK is to keep animals from getting stuck in the mud. Very likely it will be removed once it completely dries.
