SANParks HONORARY RANGERS PRESENTED WITH RHINO CONSERVATION AWARD

At the Rhino Conservation Awards 2014, held recently at Montecasino in Johannesburg, the SANParks Honorary Rangers were presented with a rhino conservation award. This important event also coincided with the celebration of World Ranger Day.

The annual Rhino Conservation Awards were first held in 2012, having been founded by Dr Larry Hansen, in an effort to create awareness of rhino conservation issues while recognising exceptional individuals and organisations for their efforts in protecting Africa’s rhino population. The Awards are held in collaboration with the Department of Environmental Affairs and the Game Rangers’ Association of Africa.

Nominations were invited from African Rhino Range States in five categories, namely; Best Field Ranger, Best Conservation Practitioner, Best Political and Judicial Support, Best Science Research and Technology and Best Awareness, Education or Funding. The nomination process was open to anyone to nominate any candidate that they felt was worthy of an award. A large number of nominations were received and the executive committee carefully reviewed all nominations to draw up a shortlist of finalists in each category. A panel of adjudicators then identified the winners in each category, to be honoured at the gala dinner ceremony.

This year, Conservation Services National Project of the SANParks Honorary Rangers received first place in the category of Best Awareness, Education and Funding. In the last 12 months Conservation Services National Project has raised over R 5 million in the fight against rhino poaching within our national parks.

The donations received are from various partners and fundraising activities, such as Mokhohlolo and Sunset Serenade which are held in the Kruger National Park on a annual basis. The money is channelled via the SANParks Honorary Rangers' counter poaching structures to make the biggest possible impact in the war against poaching.

The Rhino Conservation Awards recognise those that are willing to sacrifice themselves and their resources to ensure that this iconic species is not lost to future generations. With global reach and a platform for appreciation, so much more can be achieved and so many more efforts acknowledged.
