Media Release: Recapture the nostalgia with Custos
Date: 17th August 2012
The nostalgia associated with Custos, the national parks and wildlife magazine, can now be recaptured. This magazine was an invaluable source of scientific and historical information and carried interesting facts and figures about the parks’ fauna and flora. It also contained fascinating tales of wild and wonderful sightings, narrow escapes from the dangerous big five and amazing photography.
A box set containing digitally scanned copies in pdf format of the entire collection of this magazine is now available. The magazine was published from December 1971 up to the final edition in September 1998.
Reminisce about days gone by and the memories that formed a large part of the last quarter of the previous century with this treasure of natural scientific information. Custos was a household name to many visitors and friends of our country’s national parks for many years. It was very much a part of any visit to the Kruger National Park, as each visitor received a copy as he or she entered the park’s gates.
This project is an initiative of the SANParks Honorary Rangers, and funds raised will promote nature conservation activities in the South African National Parks.
