Sooo... Where are we at? We've got pledges of about R 14.000 for the mobile webcam,
but the aim is about R 22.000... Still some way to go...

Next steps taken on this trip can be found in the continuation of

The Woody Challenge

*edit* which is now a fundraiser and has its own thread:

Woodies and Webcams - The Challenge

and in my freshly started TR

Lionspoon & Spots go colouring in KTP again

It would be great if you guys and gals out there decide to participate in either! :thumbs_up:

No worries, anne-marie, as of yet.
We still need an answer from lion queen about the amount of leopard she saw in the end.
But I think she's still in KTP looking for more leopards. :lol:

That seems to become a habit of hers - meeting other forumites at cheetah sightings. :lol:

I know that donations towards the fight against rhino poaching would be an excellent cause, but more than a year ago, we cammers took on the challenge to raise approximately R 22000 for a mobile webcam and we still have some way to go before this will become reality. Hence, I’ll make my donations towards that project.

Providing co-operative critters this is what I’d lose in terms of cash:

A decent distance caracal sighting with good photo – R 300
A decent distance honey badger sighting with good photo – R 300
A close distance AWC sighting with good photo – R 300
A porcupine sighting with good photo – R 300
Getting close and personal with Mr. Handsome again – R 200
A cheetah mum with young cubs – R 200
A good leopard sighting – R 200



Yesss!!! :dance:
Image

Never got the mum, but I'm happy with having seen the littles ones - even no good pics came out of it...

Mr. Handsome is still under investigation and the rest of the list is history, unfortunately... :(

That means, I'm R100 short. :wink:

Now waiting for Sharifa's TR to be finished to see
if there is also a melanistic goshawk to come my way. :whistle:

Update on my pledge for Mr Handsome:

After spending quite some time on comparing my two Mr. Handsomes,
I had to draw the conclusion that I did get another Mr. Handsome during
my trip in October 2012, but probably the Handsome-Brother and not
'my' Mr. Handsome.

Here are some pics for you to compare as well, if you like:

March 2010

October 2012
Image

March 2010
Image

October 2012
Image

March 2010
Image

October 2012

So, no luck this time. But I'll try again. Soon. :twisted:

:yaya: Dear dedicated cammers and camwatchers :yaya:

we’ve got some very talented and highly dedicated mites among us :clap: who try to help in any way they can to maintain existing cams and help raising funds :k for our mobile webcam to come. Now it’s on us – the cam community – to support the endeavours to make it happen for all of us.

Please have a look here and decide whether you might want to make a personal gift for yourself or maybe for one of your loved ones. :thumbs_up:
