Over the past few months PEAP has had a busy schedule and did various dicplays:

JHB Getaway Show and KZN Careers Expo
SANParks and Honorary Rangers PEAP had a busy September at 2 major expo's, one in JHB and one in KZN. On 16 - 18 September the Annual Getaway Show took place at the Coca-Cola Dome in Johannesburg and once again SANParks had a display stand which was jointly manned by SANParks staff and PEAP representatives as well as Honorary Rangers from JHB, EAST Rand and West Rand regions. In KZN the Tourism Carreers Expo held from 17th to 19th September drew about 16 000 kids and Honorary Rangers from KZN assisted SANParks in manning the stand. PEAP would like to thank SANParks for offering Honorary Rangers the opportunity to participate in these 2 displays and would also like to thank all Honorary Rangers for their assistance and support.

PEAP at Kensington Spring Fair
PEAP held a display at the Spring fair in Kensington in JHB on Sunday the 6th September. It was a wonderful success lots of interest in the Junior Rangers and Honorary Rangers.There were about 21 000 people who saw the fair that day. Thank you to Mellory and Ernest Jordaan and Tarryn for their help in making the day a great success.

On 16 December 2009 the Honorary Ranger’s (HR’s) Public Education & Awareness Project (PEAP) began its informational exhibition at Kruger National Park’s (KNP’s) Mopani Conference Centre.

This outreach program aims to educate the public at large about conservation issues as well as the many Parks that fall under the South African National Parks (SANParks). The HRs are taking this exhibition throughout the country and their next stop is the West Coast National Park.

The exhibit consists of a variety of items (animal traps, a rhino skull, kudu horns, lion claws, snake skins, shark's teeth, owl feathers, and whale bones) as well as display boards with useful information. Apart from the rhino horn and elephant tusks, which are made from imitation fibreglass, all other items have been donated from the various Parks.

Monique, the African Penguin (formerly Jackass Penguin) stands guard as the mascot of this rather special collection and was donated by the friendly staff at Boulders.

One of the main attractions of this exhibition is the interaction with the Honorary Rangers who man this exhibit. Many conservation issues are tackled by the HRs - such as poaching, the existence of Parks and the conservation of vultures are initiated with the public.

Mopani Rest Camp and its Conference Centre are honoured to have the Honorary Rangers and PEAP exhibit there.

This exhibition will run until 3 January 2010 - times: 08:00 - 19:00.
