Junior Rangers visit the KZN HRs

Date: 2009-03-09

The KwaZulu-Natal Region's Honorary Rangers first meeting of 2009 discussed the Junior Rangers’ work. A slide show entitled - “A Pictorial History of Junior Rangers (JRs) in KZN 2006 – 2009” was presented.

These photographs showed the first recruitment and training sessions up to the present date, visits to schools, a training course for facilitators in Golden Gate Highlands National Park and a visit to Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve by the first group of Junior Rangers to qualify on the old system.

A large contingent of JRs from Umlazi participated at this meeting and two of the JRs shared their impressions of being in a Big Five park for the first time. Two of them are now studying conservation at a tertiary level, while two more are seeking bursaries to do the same. They have also volunteered their services to assist with PEAP shows at schools.

The KZN HR feel proud that these Junior Rangers share the vision of making a difference where they are and are taking this out into their post school lives.

KZN HR are also grateful that they now have two qualified Honorary Rangers from among the facilitators and two applicants who have come forward this year as HR applicants. With volunteers like this, the JR movement can only grow and benefit the HR movement.
