Sommer not eat-not in the mood (DID you see the latest rhino poaching update? 168 rhinos where 101 in KNP poached this year) :wall:
We should start doing something productive here on SanParks or there will be none left in 5 years... :hmz:

How is your prac going though? What grade are you doing?

I know I did see the update, it is shocking!!!!!! The more we create awareness, the worse it is becoming :twisted: But we must still do something about it! Everyday, on my way to varsity I drive past the African Conservation Trust, and they have put up a board which says how many have been poached to date.

The prac is fine, I am only starting with giving my own classes next week (11 classes a week, 2 grade 10 groups and 1 grade 9 group) and maybe in 5 weeks going to start with a grade 11 group.
Don't really like the school but my teacher, mnr van Rooyen is very nice.

I think we should maybe start a fundraiser for another anti-poaching gig (Cheetah had an ad on for a sensor type of thing) Maybe we should look at that?

Good day V-Mites :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:

Are any of you familiar with the forum 'birding school for ducklings'?
Its an ID quizz. You have a week to look up the ID's of 10 birds. You send in your answers on PM to the quizzmaster, and get tips on where you went wrong and how to help your birding ID in the future!!
check it out here!

Heellllloooo maatjies!! I'm so glad it's weekend finally. But will probably have a boring weekend anyway, hehehe. You know one of putting my nose in the books. But will probably do some 'therapy' aka baking stuff. Just got a given a day off :). The 30th April. A supposed work day between a million holidays. I can have it as a holliday, :)

have a super weekend everyone.

I have done Bird school for a while. I think I should go back, I totally suck at IDing birdies.
