Thembelisha Completes Second Leg of Earth Hour Challenge

Thembelisha Preparatory School’s Grade 7 class  completed their second leg of the Hlane’s IWIYW Earth Hour Challenge.

Having completed the first leg of the challenge , Thembelisha’s Grade 7 class completed the second leg of Hlane’s Earth Hour Challenge by picking up roadside litter after the annual Simunye Fun Fair festival.   See video above.

Earlier on this year on Earth Hour,  Hlane Royal National Park  went beyond the hour by challenging Thembelisha Preparatory School’s Grade 7 class to a roadside cleanup of the Hlane part of the MR3 Simunye Road, once every term for 2012 Earth Hour’s I Will If You Will Campaign. In return, Hlane will sponsor a free educational at the park for the class as well as an impala on the spit for their year-end function.

Thembelisha is left with 1 more roadside pick up after having embarked on this one after one of the country’s biggest annual festivals held at Simunye. The Grade 7 class of 58 and their teachers picked up litter along the MR3 that falls within Hlane Royal National Park. See more video’s below.

The IWIYW Challenge is Earth Hour’s 2012 theme where individuals and organisations dared people to do something about climate change and they pledged to do something in return.

Sawubona! Welcome to Big Game Parks' Blog! From the flatlands in the East, through the mountainous and scenic West, to the heart of the lowveld in the South East, the Kingdom of Swaziland not only offers you nearly every example of African landscape but also unforgettable wildlife, culture, adventure and birding experiences. Big Game Parks (BGP) is a private non-profit Trust which manages three game reserves in Swaziland: Hlane Royal National Park, Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary and Mkhaya Game Reserve. All follow a common mission: to conserve the rich biodiversity of Swaziland's natural heritage. In 1960 the Reilly's family established the Kingdom's first game reserve on the Reilly family farm, Mlilwane. Hlane Royal National Park and Mkhaya Game Reserve soon followed and today the company's contribution to the restoration and protection of the Kingdom’s biodiversity is of great significance (BGP actually saved 22 species from extinction in Swaziland!) and can truly be appreciated by the discerning traveller. Swaziland is well-situated between Kruger National Park and Kwa-Zulu Natal as well as Gauteng, Mpumalanga and Maputo. Big Game Parks’ well-positioned and diverse game reserves are an essential destination in any itinerary.
