Congratulations, VHRs!

Congratulations, SANParks Forums!


Late nights. Early mornings. Postings. PMs. Emails. Facilitating. Coordinating. Cooperating. Hosting. Fundraising. Documenting. Reporting. Planning. Executing. Begging. Deciding. Inspiring. Instructing. Approving. Disapproving. Meets. Greets. Conflict resolution. Phone calls. Transportation. Binoculars. Books. Bins. Hats. Drapes. T-shirts. Computers. Children's eyes sparkling with delight. Ranger hearts touched. Forumites thrilled.

Aaaaaaaah... Just a few of the broad brush strokes of what the VHRs have been up to in the past 4 years. (Non-stop.)

SANParks are indebted to the VHRs for the hard work, determination, and the never-ending effort and support. We convey our deep-felt gratitude to your team, as well as to the HR organization and its management. Thank you for everything you did, and still do for SANParks. For Nature Conservation.

This Kudu Award could not have gone into more worthy hands. :clap: :k :gflower:

We are proud to be associated with you, VHRs, and we are ready to admit: You Virtually Rock!

Thank you Nedret for those words :) Thank you too, for your guidance and wisdom, always.

I am in Kruger, and so far battled to get a good enough signal to reply here.

This is indeed an award for the forums, for all those forum members who have started and run/assisted with initiatives and projects that support SANParks and conservation on these forums; those who support the projects in so many different ways; those who have worked together over the years in a constructive and positive manner with the VHRs to make a difference in our national parks and for conservation. This forum community has been 'put on the map'. We can and do make a huge contribution. And long may we do so :clap: :clap:

Some pics for the time being, Hawk has some video footage he will load when we are back home.
