Cricket@Skukuza 2010 focuses on anti-poaching efforts

Date: 2010-03-09

The annual Cricket@Skukuza event will be held this weekend 12-14 March at the Skukuza Cricket Ground in Kruger National Park (KNP). As always, this event will see the SANParks online forum members and SANParks employees and families and friends get together for a fun-filled weekend of cricket and networking.

Along with the fun of meeting the people who interact online all year, the Cricket@Skukuza event is an opportunity for the forum members to contribute towards a SANParks' effort that they (the forum members) decide upon. This is done through an auction held both online and on the day of the cricket game. Previously, the auction contributed towards the Cybertracker project and other equipment for the rangers and this year, the auction will be raising funds to assist with anti-poaching efforts.

For additional information on how to be involved in the auctions, please see the following link.

The cricket games will be blogged and brought to you live via webcam on Saturday, 13 March, at the following links:

Everyone is invited to be a part of the fun and fund-raising effort even from the comfort of your homes if you can't be at KNP!
