WWF SA and SANParks have teamed up and are calling upon the public to celebrate and support the conservation of our national parks as the cornerstone of protected areas in the country.

During lockdown, many of us realised the true value of nature; how much we need it and how much we crave it when we cannot access it. With the easing of the six-month lockdown restrictions, we too re-emerge to connect with nature and appreciate the value of our natural heritage.

We now know, more than ever, that we need our natural spaces and places.

Beyond the critical role our national parks play in the protection of our rich biodiversity, they also yield untold economic, cultural, and social benefits.

How to help

Did you know that as little as R300 can maintain one hectare of the park for a year? Donate now, and you could win a unique SANParks prize.

By making a donation of a minimum of R300, you will be entered into the SANParks competition draw, where you stand the chance to win one of the following prizes:

  • First Prize: An opportunity for two people to accompany the SANParks game capture team for one day as they conduct game capture operations in a South African national park.
  • Second Prize: An opportunity for a group of four people to experience a Wilderness Trail in the Kruger National Park.
  • Third Prize: Three winners will each receive two nights’ accommodation for two people sharing, at a national park of their choice.

The aim is to raise between R3 million – R5 million from September 2020.
