Media Release: KNP on a mission to Keep Kruger Clean
Date: 25th July 2012
Kruger National Park’s (KNP) HOD: Tourism and Marketing, Ms Lucy Nhlapo has officially launched the “Vukani the Vulture” mascot today, Wednesday (25 July 2012) during the Keep Kruger Clean Campaign. The mascot will assist in keeping Kruger clean by influencing people to change their behaviour about littering in the park.
“The Keep Kruger Clean campaign is so important to us and we simply cannot stop this initiative as the Kruger National Park receives more than 1.4 million visitors per year. The increase in the number of visitors means an increase in the number of other variables such as littering” said Ms Nhlapo.
The Keep Kruger Clean campaign has been running for the past six years, since its launch in 2006. The objective of the campaign is to create awareness in and outside of the park about the dangers of littering and to educate learners at a young age about the importance of a clean environment.” We want to involve communities, staff, business associates and society at large to say, please help us to Keep Kruger Clean” concluded Ms Nhlapo.
This year the Keep Kruger Clean campaign was held at the following gates: Punda Maria, Phalaborwa, Orpen, Numbi, and Crocodile Bridge while the main event was at Kruger Gate. The events took place simultaneously under the theme “Collectively striving for a clean Kruger and healthy environment. This allowed school kids from the neighbouring communities to participate at the gate closest to them.
