I'm a bit remote to provide physical help but I had an :idea: Would it be possible to get the TV/Radio involved? A story about our concerns, the pledge and links to find out more. Perhaps a downloadable fact sheet on the dos and don'ts.

Our regional TV station loves special interest features like this but I realise it may be different in SA. Do the newsreaders still alternate each line between Africaans and English :?

Some of the local radio stations might get involved as some of the presenters are passionate about the bush. I'm not in the right profession to know how to go about approaching them, but perhaps someone in marketing could give it a go?

I had a halfway decent interaction with a well known radio presenter during my last visit and I am willing to ask for hiss help.

He is very passionate about wildlife.

Any thoughts on this one?

Edit:

Personally I think Noco's videos are very hard hitting and may get some good milege flighted on TV.

Why is the thread so quiet ?
Just stumbled onto it and do think it sorry that it is has been rather inactive.
Do think your 'tick the box' a great idea Jenb :clap: , do others think that it could be implemented ?

It seems as if the forumites are not too keen on this whole idea. :huh:

I have mentioned in others replies " get them , fine them and ban them " . Please let us not simplify or sweet talk about offenders. I have recently contacted SAN PARKS about worrying issues and I am sure that something positive will be coming from this.In my communication I mentioned that no true KNP or NATURE lover would mind one bit should policing be stepped up. Unfortunately everyone going to KRUGER is no longer a nature lover , so if they cannot behave get rid of them . Quote James Cook : " DEMOCRACY IS THE PRIVILEGE OF THE SELF DISCIPLINED ".Democracy definitely does not mean that anyone has the right to do as it likes. Time will prove that the old rules which are now sneered at by many were there for the good, being : CUSTOS NATURAE
