World Ranger Day

The 31st of July is set aside as World Ranger Day, a day to appreciate the work these dedicated people perform on behalf of humanity, to celebrate their successes and commemorate those that laid down their lives in the line of duty.

Ranger Day

Having just spent three days with two exemplary rangers on the Sweni Wilderness Trail in the Kruger National Park, it became as clear as ever just what an incredible debt of gratitude we owe the men and women protecting our natural heritage.

    Ons het hier ‘n duikertjie op die landgoed wat ons moet laat verwyder. Hier was mense wat al 2X probeer het en nou soek hulle R3000 Het jy dalk vir ons ‘n plan? Ek samel geldjies in maar nog nooit was R3000 so bai8e nie (Grinnik en ek het mos nie meer skoolkinders om te bedel nie)

      Dis jammer dat julle die bokkie moet laat verwyder! Mag ek vra waarom? Baie honde? Grysduikertjies pas maklik aan in n beboude area, mits daar plek is waar hulle bedags kan skuil.

      Gewoonlik vang hulle bokkies van duikers se grootte met nette.

        Jong hier word maklik 10 huise gelyk gebou Sy skuilplekke is nou min en soms hardloop hy vervaard rond … dit breek my hart. Snags is daar genoeg om te eet en kan hy uit ons voëlbadjies drink. Hy gaan baie binnekort in die bouers se pot land.

                      Mense het vir lank geglo duikers paar lewenslank, maar dis eintlik omdat hulle so gebiedsvas is dat dieselfde rammetjie en ooitjie dikwels jaar-in en jaar-uit in dieselfde area gesien word.

      Absolutely Ineke. Fighting poaching these days is a war, and human lives mean less to the poachers than the horns, tusks, skins, bones, scales, etc that they are after.
