Addo’s Golf Day in aid of counter-poaching

2016-03-30 06:00

THE SANPark’s Honorary Rangers of Addo Elephant National Park are organising their 11th annual golf day on Thursday, May 5, at the Port Elizabeth Golf Club.

With the continual threat of poaching within SANParks, all money raised on the day will be used to fund counter-poaching activities within Addo Elephant National Park.

Addo Elephant National Park, situated only 40 kilometres from Port Elizabeth. conserves the ‘Big 7’, including Southern Right Whales and Great White Shark.

Now the third largest national park in South Africa, Addo Elephant National Park has expanded to conserve a wide diversity of biodiversity, landscapes, fauna and flora.

Stretching from the semi-arid Karoo area in the north around Darlington Dam, over the rugged Zuurberg Mountains, through the Sundays River valley and south to the coast between Sundays River mouth and Bushman’s river mouth, Addo covers about 180 000 hectares (444 700 acres) and includes the Bird and St Croix Island groups. The Park offers visitors a wide range of accommodation and eco-activities.

Companies and individuals are invited to enter a four-ball at R1 400 per team and / or sponsor a tee or green for as little as R500.

This is an opportunity to associate your company (or yourself) with the conservation efforts of the Addo Elephant National Park. Donations of prizes are welcome.
