Digital Projector Purchase

During the Third Phase of the Spinner Dolphin Research project, the GVI Charitable Trust funded a new digital projector to assist in both the training of volunteer researchers and the dissemination of information to local stakeholders on the status of their marine assets and the results of the ongoing research into the Spinner Dolphin pod that have inhabited the sacred Moon Reef for as long as most villagers can remember.

The Digital projector has enabled Dr Cara Miller of WDCS and the GVI research team to present information, data, and educational videos to the community in an accessible and attractive way during info and awareness evenings. The projector is also an integral tool during the initial training of volunteers and is used to show in large format the detail of dorsal id images and photo-id methodology.  

GVI and WDCS would like to thank the donors that enabled the purchase of this important asset for our programs in the Dawasamu District.

September Updates

During the registration process it was discovered that extra work needs to be done to make the buildings more fire safe. Due to this safety factor we are currently unable to operate as usual. We are busy working with our project partners to ensure the building is to the correct standard so that we can be fully registered and provide a safe learning environment for all of the children. Once this has been established we will be back to continue the work the centre provides. Without your donations the children whose parents are unemployed or cannot afford school fees would hugely struggle.

Daktari Outreach Program Update

The outreach team continues to have weekly presence at Ramatau and Maahlamele High Schools with the help of a recent vehicle rental agreement, paid for by donations.

In recent news, the Ramatau Eco Club kids have started their very own dance troupe as part of their fundraising drive. Check out a video of their performances at www.youtu.be/v9ow6uzwmmA

The Bushwise field guide school (www.bushwise.co.za) students have also played their part by organizing and delivering bespoke lessons on the region’s ecology and wildlife conservation to the eco club students.

On the final weekend of September, the Ramatau kids were able to attend the Hoedspruit Sustainable Living Festival and help the festival organizers run the stalls and spread their message.

One of the most promising eco club students, Grace, has had an interview organized at the Southern Cross School in Hoedspruit, an excellent private school that is considering her suitability for a full scholarship! We will bring you news of Grace’s progress and the pending WESSA Eco Schools status of Ramatau and Maahlamele.
