Some new action is about to start thanks to PJL:


Look at the following link if you would like more info: Addo Mobile Cam



:cam: Live from Addo National Park, South Africa :cam:

The images will come from PJLs mobile phone, and from Monday 30th January to Wednesday 1st February he is going to try and get it working from within one of South Africa's National Parks - Addo


To view the webcam:

PJLs Mobile webcam at Addo



If PJL succeeds to get the cam working and broadcast live images I with donate R200 towards the Mobile Webcam Project


If you want to donate please click here

Please mark all donations as "VHR - Mobile Webcam" in the Message to SANParks Honorary Rangers

Now that I received the official :thumbs_up: from SANParks and the mods for another fundraiser,

I would like to invite all cam lovers from far and near to join

a new opportunity to raise more funds towards the Mobile Webcam!

Just as a reminder what it is about:
Lionspoon wrote:
The aim: A mobile webcam that can be hauled to different SANParks.

The method: *Amended* Fun promoting events around the webcam theme.

The payment: Donations made via GivenGain to VHR Support. *Edit* OR a national bank account (Details will be sent out once the challenge is settled.)

The profit: Insights to less visited SANParks.


See here for the new event coming up soon.


Any pledges made are on the condition that PJL manages to set up his phone as a webcam
for the period of time he is in Addo. Meaning no cam, no claim. :thumbs_up:

Feel free to join the fun! Any pledge - small or big - is highly appreciated!

As I already made my monthly contribution of R200 to the VHR's for not a specific project I would like that JenB allocate my donation made on the 26th January 2012 to this project. :thumbs_up:

I'm really liking this idea of donations for sightings :lol: . I've been very fortunate on previous visits in that there are very few of the larger animals in the park that I haven't yet seen... but my kids are dying to see lion, so my donations for sightings list is as follows:
[*]Lion - R100
[*]Leopard R500
[*]Rh*** R300
[*]Civet R200
[*]Caracal R100

I'll pay for each one as well :shock:

:big_eyes: PJL, not only are you generous in terms of setting up that mobile cam
and paying for it - your pledges don't come cheap either. :lol:

I thought of leopard as well, but have never heard anybody reporting a sighting
of it, so I thought the mammal list for Addo was 'bogus' :tongue:

I'm with you on the the pledge for a leopard - 500 Rand it is. :thumbs_up:

PJL is still in the park - so pledges can still be made!

So far he found us lions (worth 200 Rand) and eland (worth 100 Rand)! :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

Let's see what the rest of his trip will bring. :dance:

But I'll insist on having caught a caracal on your webcam. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Well the caracal blob even made it onto your slightly skewed picture... caracal blob in the middle of the circle:
