The Conserv Team has just returned from Marataba Conservation Camps where they hosted some guests and donors of the Conserv NPO. We fitted 6 smart collars, which are an innovative and new approach to rhino conservation. They use an algorithm that learns and understands each rhino’s behaviour. If this changes, it sends an immediate signal to the conservation team. To learn more, click on this block…
“The fact is that no species has ever had such wholesale control over everything on earth, living or dead, as we now have. That lays upon us, whether we like it or not, an awesome responsibility. In our hands now lies not only our own future, but that of all living creatures with whom we share the earth.”
- Sir David Attenborough
We, as a single species have the ability to conserve and heal this planet. It’s imperative that this happens….the world does not need humans to survive, but we need it. To co-exist, we need to protect and nurture it so that we can strive to balance the scale.From the vast swathes of Africa, to an individual’s garden or park, all life needs to be respected.
“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.”
- Carl Sagan
Every natural being on this planet starts life as a miracle. That miracle grows, learns and adapts to what its surroundings are and how it is coded to live. We as humans are probably the most adaptive as we have guidance and intelligence. However, this can either be very positive or negative, depending on the environment around us. It is well documented that all life thrives in a natural environment and that nature has such an overwhelming influence on how we as humans grow and understand life itself.
“A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions”

Travelling with a purpose and making a difference while doing so is an incredibly powerful feeling. Going on a safari is life changing but going on one where you can actively participate and understand what is happening in conservation and the amazing areas that you are visiting is even better.
