iSimangaliso’s environmental education – changing lives Now in its twentieth year as South palpably delighted at the opportunity to Africa’s first and most diverse UNESCO introduce even more young people to the wonders of his beautiful place of World Heritage Site, iSimangaliso is employment. As of the end of September, extremely proud of its legacy as a provider of 4181 learners from 96 schools had already quality environmental education for the crossed the Park entrance grid on a voyage youth surrounding the Park.

existence, but also showed the lasting benefits of tourism, associated business opportunities and career paths resulting from the Park.


There were gasps of delight and wonder at some of the sea creatures that can be found in the intertidal zone at Mission Rocks on the Eastern Shores. The learners also spotted animals such as kudu, warthog, wildebeest and zebra. Vumase, often partnering with other educators from organisations such as Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife, Wildlands Trust and Isolemvelo Conservation Trust, actively visits as many of the close neighbouring schools as time and budget allow. This financial year the annual target of 30 school visits has already been exceeded. Neighbouring schools are also invited to participate in free visits to the Park as part of the structured environmental education programme, with iSimangaliso sponsoring transport for small groups on its branded bus. Beyond the immediate vicinity, all schools are also welcome to apply to visit on a discounted basis outside of weekends and holiday periods. As far as possible, these groups are provided with external education guides trained by and paid for by iSimangaliso.

For iSimangaliso’s Chief Executive Officer, Sibusiso Bukhosini, the visit by over 70 learners from his former primary school – Phasula Primary in Manguzi – in early October was particularly special. Today he stands as an example of what is possible for children even from the smallest schools in deep rural areas, if they persevere with studies and maximise their potential.

“I am delighted to see such progressive achievements with regards to exposing our local school children to the Park”, says iSimangaliso CEO Sibusiso Bukhosini. “Through this, we believe that our young people living adjacent to the park will grow up with a better understanding of conservation, thereby continuing to ensure meaningful contribution towards biodiversity conservation!”

TALK TO US


RED Services Driver risk mitigation - Intermediate driver training www.redservices.co.za

Are you concerned about the skill levels of your children on the road?

You should be! For years we have trained in advanced driver training, the differing skill levels of people arriving at these courses is quite vast. Most younger drivers are not ready for advanced driver training and therefore a bridging course has been sorely needed. We have a unique training aid that allows drivers to learn what it feels like to lose control at a very slow speed, this is invaluable as it allows us to teach them many of the skills they would pick up at an advanced training course without all the risks of high speed attached. Skid pans can go wrong and many people have been in hospital beds because of them, traditional advanced driver training has led to over confidence amongst some youngsters and the nature of youth has led to some tragic consequences. The training we have devised leads to a healthy respect of a motor vehicle and what it feels like to lose control at a low speed, therefore training people to drive slower and respect the rules of the road. The Skid Car we have is the total solution for the newly licenced driver and is internationally recognised as valuable and therefore we are totally confident that it will teach the driver the skills they so desperately need. The practical component is followed with an on road defensive driver training component which will reduce the risk on the roads that we all face, the training incorporates many anti-hi jacking systems that also allow for safer driving. All parents dread sending their children onto the roads, this training programme can teach them respect for the roads and the skills taught may save them from harm.

Bookings can be made via the website or email richard@redservices.co.za

Higher Ground has been running programmes of therapeutic recreation (adventure camps) for people with disabilities since 2004. We are an NPO and are based in Durban. Our programmes are run at various venues within an hour or two of Durban, and occasionally in the Western Cape and Gauteng. We are passionate about running our 'camps' and feel that the benefits offered to

The opportunities teens who are blind or really are endless! our participants are huge.


A secondary aim is to provide respite to parents and caregivers. They are able to rest and sometimes even have a holiday of their own whilst knowing that their loved one is having a wonderful time and is well taken care of. Volunteers 'staff' the camps. They are what make the programmes amazing and they are just incredible. They take care of any personal care needs our participants might have, assist with getting around and plan and run our activities. They are usually students or young working people who take time off to make a difference in the lives of our amazing participants. As a result they also gain great experience working with people who have disabilities, which we believe is beneficial to their own communities and spheres of influence.

Situated within the beautiful 1,000 hectare Umhloti Nature Reserve, 15 kilometres outside Nelspruit, the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) South Africa Chimpanzee Sanctuary is home to chimps that have been misplaced from their natural habitats in Africa. Chimp Eden was established in 2006 and is home to 33 chimpanzees. This JGI chimpanzee sanctuary brings the world of chimpanzees closer to humanity through education end eco-tourism. The goal of the chimpanzee sanctuary is to rescue chimpanzees that have survived the bush meat trade, been orphaned, traded in the illegal pet market, or rescued from being traumatised for entertainment in circuses, beach resorts and night clubs.

Thomas

Bazia

Charlie The chimpanzees at Chimp Eden are the lucky ones, living out their lives in a risk free environment and being provided with the necessary attention to recover from the trauma they have experienced. The chimpanzees spend their days in semi-wild enclosures, and show normal social interaction and behavioural patterns as group members. The South African chimpanzee sanctuary is proud to be part of the Jane Good Institute, which is a global leader in the effort to conserve and preserve endangered species and habitats, and in particular chimpanzees.


On your guided tour, each chimpanzee is introduced and their often sad stories are told in an effort to create awareness and educate the guests on the struggles wild chimpanzees face and what we all can do to help save an protect these beautiful creatures for our future generations.

Martha The sanctuary is open to the public 7 days a week. Two chimpanzee families are visited on the 3 daily tours (10:00am, 12:00pm &14:00pm)

Cozy

The sanctuary is a non-profit organization and rely greatly on donations from the public and the guests that visit the sanctuary and support us by doing a tour, becoming a chimpanzee guardian or simply buying a unique gift in our curio shop.
