Southern Cape World Ranger Day Event

There was a very well attended and successful “Ranger day" celebration in the Southern Cape on the 1st August 2014 at the Wilderness National Park.


GRAA member Nellie Grootendorst (Wilderness National Park Manager) arranged an eventful day for field rangers from Tsitsikamma National Park and Garden Route National Park including staff from the Knysna area, the forest component and Wilderness National Park.

Longstanding GRAA member Rhett Hiseman was one of a few speakers on the day followed by a survival demonstration and then some sports (soccer etc). Rhett presented to the approximately 70 rangers on the GRAA and the role that it plays which went down really well amongst those rangers in attendance. Rangers also had a minutes silence in honour of our colleagues who have fallen in line of duty.

Well done Nellie, Rhett and all the rangers of GRNP!
