      Hi Maurice, nice to hear from you again, and thanks for the kind comment about our new look :-D

      But ah, those pangolin photos still eludes us, and at the pace the poor things are being poached these days…

    Thank you for popping over to my fledgling blog and “liking” my posts. I look forward to learning more about South Africa through you. One of my favorite books is “The Power of One.” And that is just about the extent of my knowledge of your country. I’m sure I will be learning more and more!

      Thank you Wilf for dropping by de Wets Wild!

      Unfortunately I haven’t been working out in the field for a long time, but we like to think that we can still do our part in other ways, and hopefully this blog is a small piece of that.

    I am new to WordPress. Thank you for your encouragement. I’m just an amateur, but I love photos, and I love yours and your family adventures. I’m now following you on FB, too.

      Thank you very much for thinking of us Khana! The awards don’t really fit with our theme, but we nevertheless appreciate your very kind gesture immensely and it’s wonderful to have you join us!

    Thank you for liking my latest post of Family on the Weekly Photo Challenge. I came to visit and enjoy a few more of your posts, this time of Golden Gate Park. Your shots of the clouds and the greening of the mountainous land gave my joy. This earth is a beautiful and marvelous place, and it cheers me to find your website celebrating and protecting South Africa. Best wishes to you and your family in 2014.
    ps You visited the Curiosity Cafe for the WPC, but I have to comment using my rainbowspinnaker site, haven’t figured out how to use CC to comment yet.

      Thank you very much Toni for thinking of de Wets Wild and sharing your well deserved recognition with us! Unfortunately the awards often don’t fit with our theme here, but we’ll think of another way to return the favour!

        it’s okay. many people do not accept awards, for whatever reason. But I like passing them along and it points people to look at perhaps, a blog they normally would not. It gives them new possiblilities, new topics to learn from, a new perspective. To me, that is more important than just the award – it’s meeting new people and making this huge world a little smaller.

    Thank you for letting me know you enjoyed my contribution to this week’s photo challenge: let there be light. I have had a little look at your spot here – I love the green landscape in the beautiful photo of Addo Elephant National Park. I send kind regards and good wishes to your lovely selves.

    Thank you for visiting my blog and liking my post “Layers”. I am now following your blog because I love nature and think must be fascinating to live in South Africa, where you can see species in their natural environment that we (in USA) can only see in zoos! I admire your efforts to advertise the beauty of nature, so that we may not destroy it.
