Just wondering how the spending of the R250 million is going? Seems very quiet? Perhaps someone on the ground can enlighten us on any positive changes since this huge financial injection was received.

Sadly, the slaughter of the rhino seems to be unrelentless

SANParks HONORARY RANGERS PRESENTED WITH RHINO CONSERVATION

Unread post by SHR PR & Media » Thu Aug 14, 2014 1:15 pm

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.

I just want to say thank you to some deserving staff members in Kruger :wink:

Firstly… the ladies at Orpen camp’s reception :gflower: They greeted us with warm smiles and our check in was handled professionally and quickly. They were also very patient with a female tourist who seemed to have a problem with her credit card. Overall, they were very friendly and helpful. Well done to them! :clap: :clap:

Secondly… the two male cashiers in the Orpen shop (whose names escape me at the moment :redface: ) They were so friendly and it really looked like they are enjoying their jobs! It was a pleasure shopping there. Also, the renovated shop looks great! :clap: :clap:

Lastly, the staff at Tshokwane :gflower: The staff were friendly and the food was, as always, delicious. They have been very consistent in their service delivery over the past few years. Really a job well done! :clap: :clap:

The staff in the restaurants, shops and reception are the ones we as tourists deal with directly, it's great to see so many of them doing a fantastic job as this leaves a lasting impression

Thank you for making our Kruger trips extra special! Image
