This should IMHO not influence anything as all proceeds from these calanders can go directly to SANParks and the shops not taking thier cut, maybe they should be sold at the gates :hmz:

Hi Inyati, welcome back! Good to have you back, we thought you had forgotten about us :wink:

Have you read this topic?

We have had a couple of proposals for a calendar, so I am going to merge all those on the forums into one topic and then lets take it from there :thumbs_up:

I thought that having "change" boxes at all the till points in the parks. i.e. Gates/reception and shops! Any currency can be put in. Even notes! :D

I have seen these in Pick 'n Pay shops and I know some airlines have done it in the past.
It is always convenient as mites have their purses and wallets already in their hands.

This is of course if it has not been done already.

Have a "competition" to name this project! ~Something like "Change to make a difference"

Evening folks,

It is time to get things moving in a very serious way. Read HERE.

There are a few things in the works in support of the Anti Poaching campaign and I for first will be working to make it work and work well.

A few of you will be PM'd and really hope I get your support.

Initial things in the works are:
- "Stop Poaching" t-shirts and sweat shirts
- 2011 Calenders which will each month dedicated to a person, happening or whatever else in this forum.
- Posters in limited numbers
- A special single edition book which will a big surprise to all!

Your support is needed!!!!

ANDY
