Please help the SANParks Honorary Rangers!

I am looking for high res photos of the following animals to print onto display banners.

Aardvark; pangolin; civet; genet and serval
and a really ugly marabou stork

Photos must preferably show the whole body. If you can assist, please send your photos to peap@honoraryrangers.org

All photographers will be credited under each photo and the banners will be used at outdoor expos, school talks, etc.

Many thanks

Many views and this is the first response to your post.
Having credit for the photos used will not pay the bills.

Poohbear wish I could've helped but the only thing on your list that I have a kiekie off-and noyt even a good one :slap: is the marabou stork.

JohnR this is not about money. They are going to use the photos for educational purposes. We all are here on the forum because we love the parks and what is in there. So why wouldn't we want to help out with such a good cause?

Thanks Heksie, you said it all.

JohnR, the SANParks Honorary Rangers are a volunteer organisation who do a lot of excellent work for conservation. Absolutely no pressure if it is not for you.

Thanks everyone and sorry for delayed response - have been in the Kruger Park. Unfortunately not lucky enough to see any of these elusive animals, so still need the photos! To those who emailed me direct, will get back to you soon and thanks for the photos.
