Sasol Bird identification books for KTP

Unread postby bert » Sun Nov 14, 2010 11:48 am

The Virtuel Honorary Rangers received a request from Jan Kriel (KTP head field guide),
Kgalagadi Guru on the forum for 11 Sasols for the guides and camp attendents to use
for id, study material so that they can guide the visitors through KTPs birdlife.

Thanks to you all we were in the position to fullfill his request and Imberbe made a nice deal on behalf of the VHR.

He has the books at the moment and the VHR would be very gratefull if a forumite in the area of Pretoria going to KTP will pick them up and deliver them to Jan.
Postage is huge and we can the use the money for much more worthwhile goals.

Please contact Imberbe or any other moderator

Nice story. And what a worthy cause.
Being a HR myself stories like this are of great interest to me.
And a VHR? I gather it is a band volunteers from the forum who want to make a difference. Can any one be a VHR?
KTP- 23/4/15 to 26/4/15 - Mata Mata
27/4/14 to 30/4/15 - Nossob
1/5/15 to 4/5/15 - Gharagab
