I am passionate about wildlife and the preservation of endangered animals and birds. The habitat for many endangered species in South Africa is being decimated by man and the numbers of many of these species have been decreasing at a frightening rate. Wildlands and the Wild Series are doing amazing work to help these animals and birds. It is a truly worthy cause. If it also means that I am losing some unwanted kilos wile raising the profile of a great initiative then all the better!
Wildlands, a leading environmental NPO, aims to underwrite the sustainable development of all South Africans. Central to their work is a focus on unlocking the potential of the underprivileged - they have an incredible contribution to make, if they’re only allowed to do so.
A Wildlands initiative, the Wild Series was established to profile South Africa’s spectacular natural heritage while raising funds for key conservation projects. These events provide participants with the opportunity of running or mountain biking through some of our most beautiful, wildness location and have raised millions for conservation in the process. From protecting the African Wild Dog and the Bearded Vulture to incredible adventures through awe-inspiring landscapes – the Wild Series challenges are about more than just sports.
