Project Pangolin, an update

It is with great excitement that we are prepping for annual golf day in aid of “Project Pangolin”. The project focuses on the rehabilitation and release of poached and injured pangolins, as wells the education of all wilderness landowners on the correct electric fence structure that is pangolin friendly. As the day approaches we thought it best to provide some insight into the strides that we have made:

  • We have identified key reserves that fit the criteria for pangolin release.
  • After consultation with various experts and reserve mangers, we have ascertained the correct electric fence structure that need to be used in order to dramatically reduce the threat of any pangolin, small mammal and reptile electrocution. 
  • We have consulted the two experts, Dr Debbie English and Emma De Jager on where they need the most assistance with the rehabilitation programme. 
  • The field caravan conversion that is vital to the to the post monitoring of released pangolins will be converted in the coming weeks leading up to the golf day. 
  • The long term project sustainability is currently being ironed out, so come the golf day we will have all in order so that any donations are allocated correctly and accounted for. 
At the golf day, Bryan Habana will be joining us again, as well as Bakkies Botha, Hennie Le Roux and Joel Stransky. Joel will also be our MC for the day, and to have two winners of Rugby World Cup 1995, along with two winners of Rugby World Cup 2007, there should be some good banter and awesome stories. We have also secured a number of awesome prizes and auction items for the golf day. The Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve and their landowners as well as surrounding reserves have come to the party with generous donations and weekend getaways. There are also weekend getaways donated from the Waterberg region, specifically the Welgevonden Game Reserve. The team at Douglas Green Breweries have once again pledged their support with some epic liquor hampers and phenomenal wine from Vineyard Friends. One of our founders and directors, Chris Renshaw, has donated some of his amazing images below to auction live on the day. 

All in all, it promises to be great day with lost of funds raised for these precious and most enigmatic creatures! 

Stay tuned for more!
