    Default Where does your donation go?

    Heartwarming thanx to all you guys who so generously donates to the H.R. Anti poaching drive!

    We, the H.R. Virtual Region is donating R 40 000.00 towards radios for the rangers after an urgent request from SANParks. This will increase communication between the rangers and anti poaching squads.

    It is a national project so all regions are pulling together to foot the bill but that is our donation which includes all of yours.

    Many, many thanx!
    May we continue to strive to save the rhinos!

    Why does this equipment have to be publicly funded?

    Because SANParks simply don't have the budget for it Owen. The government only provides about 17% of SANParks' running cost. They generate around 80% themselves.

    That set aside, the spike in rhino poaching costs more than one can believe so there is a great need for additional funding.

    Many people ask why the government does not provide more funding but the answer is simple really. In a country where many live without running water or a roof over their heads, there are much more pressing issues for them to worry about so conservation is down on the list.

    The H.R.'S and public assist in many ways to curb the poaching and it feels good to know that in a small way we all can pull together to make a difference.

    I guess it is just naive of me to have assumed that something as fundamental to daily operations as radios was covered by the R800million running costs.

    If it was for specialised unbudgeted equipment like extra FLIR units or something I would be less surprised, it just smacks me as odd that it was for radios.

    Anti poaching costs is not running costs. Poaching levels as they were a few years ago was easily absorbed but that is not possible at the moment.

    I think that clarifies the point sufficiently.
