Not a good forum surfer ( get dizzy scrolling pages down) but I think I get this. Will be there March 10-15...and using this list, make donations for the first sighting of any of these animals....correct? And therefore I am in. Fun and rewarding at same time. Will keep a second jar ( :wink: )in the car to drop my coins in as I go!!!!

Unsure how/where to make the donations, though. :?

Hi JustJo,

Thank you and welcome :thumbs_up:

You can draw up your own list of rare sightings and pledge an amount that you are comfortable with for a sighting.

e.g. R50 for first sighting of
black rhino
caracal
serval

You than put the challenge out and other mites can pledge for one/more animals on your list.
