3. Being a member of the SANParks Honorary Rangers implies that you work as part of the SHR movement. You will fall under the rules and regulations of the SHR movement and perform your service according to the rules, decisions and priorities of the movement.


Applications/transfer requests to the region can be made by contacting the Secretary Val Stephens on [email protected]

Once application is received it will be considered by the Regional Management Committee who will also invite the applicant to a ‘virtual meeting’. The applicants will be advised on what will be expected of them, the type of training they will need to undergo before they can be appointed full SHRs and they will be given information on how the region and the movement operates.

Acceptance of an applicant is not automatic, and the region will limit its membership numbers according to the needs and capabilities of the region.

The Virtual region operates as all other SHR regions do and complies with the SANParks HR Constitution. They serve the SANParks Forums, and the SANParks cause and hold meetings online. Membership is open to international members.
