Kruger Park News Archive

Mopani Conference Centre will soon host Honorary Rangers from several different regions. They will be busy with a programme called "People Awareness and Education" (PEAP).

This programme, which always runs in December, will this year run from Friday, December 17, 2010 to Saturday, January 1, 2011 between 10h00 and 20h00 every day. The programme includes an exhibition aimed at educating the public about conservation issues.

The public can view, and more excitingly, touch displays of mamba skins, lion skulls, shark teeth, shells, kudu horns, owl feathers and many other interesting animal objects.

There will always be Honorary Rangers on site to answer questions from viewers and the exhibition will also provide an opportunity for the public to view the Conference Centre.

The exhibition is normally held at schools throughout the country in order to educate learners about nature conservation and what the various South African National Parks are all about.

The Honorary Rangers also tackle various issues ranging from poaching to the existence of the national parks.

Talks on snakes and other various aspects of nature conservation will be conducted at Mopani Conference Centre as follows: Snakes Alive presented by Johan Smit with various snakes on 20 - 26 December 2010 between 07h00 and 20h00.

Conservation topics presented by Brian Jones with the help of a cheetah on 27 - 31 December 2010 between 07h00 and 20h00.
