TEN grade 11 pupils from KwaZulu-Natal have been selected to tour the Zululand Region from August 9 to August 13 in accordance with the Ifa Lethu Project.

The project, which combines environmental and conservative matters, seeks to create a pool of well-informed and community-spirited young men and women to promote the ideals of eco-conservation among peers, as well as offer the possibility for any who show exceptional ability and commitment to follow a career path in conservation.

This very special project has been made possible by the Jonny Lowe Memorial Trust (JLMT), a registered public benefit organisation that is committed to engaging youth in eco-conservation.

Trustee of the organisation David Ryder said that the JLMT has strong ties with the Wildlands Conservation Trust and Project Rhino, which has enabled them to make their project available to pupils.

“We offer exceptional, fully sponsored and possibly life changing opportunities in our project which include interacting with leading national conservationists, aerial surveillance of large land tracts threatened by economic exploitation, day and night game drives as well as poaching control, dog handling, tracking, culling and trading in wild life products,” said Ryder.

Schools involved include Carter High School, PMB Girls’ High School, Hilton College, Kearsney College, Hillcrest High School, Maritzburg College, Glenwood High School, Russell High School, St Charles College and the Wykeham Collegiate. Ryder hopes to include more schools in the future.
