Dear Mods and fellow Formites,

I have been trying to think of a practical way in which we can contribute to the Anti-poaching effort and the funding of the night vision helicopter etc.

If other forumites agree, maybe we can publish a coffee table book for sale in SANParks shops and other leading stockists of pictures and stories, told and taken by forum members in SAN Parks? If we can get the book endorsed by SAN Parks and maybe have some interesting contributions from rangers etc. I am sure this will be highly sellable.

ALL PROCEEDS THEREOF GO TO THE ANTI POACHING FUND.

I will be more than happy to donate some of my own pictures for publication should they be deemed of good enough quality etc.

Together we can definitely make a difference.

That's a wonderful idea. There are so many great photos and I bet a lot of forumites have a funny story to tell. :thumbs_up:

Hi cptphotographer,
Thanks for this idea. :thumbs_up:
I have passed on your idea to the VHR's.
I'm also going to move this thread to the Wild Projects Forum.

What exactly are we waiting for? I do not want this to gather dust and eventually fade into the background so to speak.

May I please have SOME feedback? The longer we dilly around the less chances are of actually getting this project off the ground (pun intended - see my first post on this thread)

Boorgatspook, is it at all possible just to move this thread somewhere where it would receive more visibility? This section of the forum seems to be the stepchild!
