We all want to contribute to anti poaching but most of the time we do not know how. Or putting a few bucks in the tin at the shops feels so hopeless. Event, fundraiser not big enough.

I know the fuel prices are getting higher and higher but what if SANParks can increase their fuel prices to contribute to anti poaching? I am not talking about allot I was thinking in the region of around 2c per Litre. Then everyone would contribute even if you are unaware of it. So many times, well in fact most times before we enter Kruger we fill up outside the park, if we knew it was for a good cause filling up inside we would most certainly fill it inside the park. Doesnt just fall under Kruger but ALL SANParks reserves.

2c might not be allot but if you take the cheer volume of people and driving in the parks I think it can make a massive effort to conserve our Parks and especially our Rhino's. I dont want my Children to see a Rhino in the Zoo or on picture.

Thank you so much for your suggestion. I will forward it to our Kruger Management and hear what they say. I will get back to you once I receive feedback.

Do enjoy the rest of your day.

As far as I am aware, this is not legally allowed.
