In the past, our wildlife resources were often taken for granted - and even eradicated in some areas to make way for domestic counterparts that were often less productive. As a result, a wide range of conditions that included limited water supply, animal diseases and parasites, difficult terrain and semi desert vegetation came to pass.
However, it is largely due to the strong conservational efforts that have gained ground over the past few decades, that there is more wildlife in
South Africa at present than during the 1970's.
This dramatic increase in our wildlife not only took place due to an increase in the number of national parks and nature reserves, but also because of the efforts made by private wildlife ranchers.
One the main purposes of this website is to inform our visitors on the importance of conservation, and to urge them to help out in order to increase the global effort that has been going strong since the start of the green movement.
In doing so, we will be able to assist organisations such as the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in their efforts, thus helping to ensure that future generations will be able to enjoy the beautiful, ecologically diverse world that we live in.
