Hi guys,

Is this project still running. We would like to make a donation to a charity instaed of having wedding favours. It would be great if we could get more info and pictures so we could make up little info cards and also promote the cause to our guests.


Most definitely the project is still running. At the moment we have expanded it to other parks as well as DB mentioned, we are about to buy a 10x5 marquee tent for Bontebok national park to assist them in bringing school children in to the park and educating them about conservation

Most of the children in our projects are from disadvantaged backgrounds, the ones who drive past the fancy entrance gates and just wonder what lies beyond. A large number of the children live close to nature and could probably show the rangers a thing or two but have no idea of what conservation is or the importance of it. hopefully we can make a difference in providing some answers and show them how the whole puzzle comes together.

In Chinese mythology 2013 is the year of the snake but in the Virtual region of the Sanparks Honorary Rangers we would like to make it the year of the child.

Hello Sparks,
I am a newie to this forum, based in Tanzania, very close to the Ruaha national Park. I find your initiative very inspiring. I have got an idea of doing something similar here in Tanzania. Young people need to be motivated and inspired to love nature. Great work you are doing.
Sufu.
