Support Conservation in Our National Parks!
South African National Parks (SANParks) is responsible for managing 19 Parks that protect the indigenous fauna, flora, landscapes and cultural heritage of the country.
The best known of these is the Kruger National Park, which is the largest in this country, as well as the oldest - proclaimed in 1898.
The annual fundraising golf day, hosted by members of the SANParks Honorary Rangers (HRs) West Rand Region for the third successive year, will take place on 21 October 2013.
All proceeds from this Conservation Golf Day go directly towards conservation projects initiated in partnership with SANParks.
The HRs support SANParks in terms of the raising of funds for projects as well as in volunteering their time to assist SANParks staff.
With generous support from both corporations and individuals, various conservation projects have been made possible.
The support for fundraising initiatives, such as this golf day, are critical in enabling us to continue with this support.
The time volunteered by the Honorary Rangers include duties working in Parks, fund raising for conservation issues, assisting in visitor management and offering specialist advice on infrastructure and scientific projects.
During 2012, the HRs contributed R44 million worth of support to SANParks.
These are some of the recent projects of West Rand Region :
- the purchase of cyber trackers to assist in the anti-poaching efforts in Kruger National Park,
- nesting boxes for red billed oxpeckers which have been re-introduced into Mokala National Park,
- assisted with the building of a vulture hide in Golden Gate National Park,
- satellite phones for field workers in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park,
- maintenance of the Bantam aircraft (which was bought by the West Rand Region) for aerial surveys in Mokala National Park,
- satellite collars to track the only free ranging wild dogs left in South Africa in the Waterberg/Marakele National Park area, and
- satellite collars for tracking the cheetahs in Mountain Zebra National Park.
