Flook Sporting Deals raises funds for SANParks rhinos
In Februry 2013, Flook Sporting deals activated a fundraiser on their website, www.flook.co.za, specifically to raise funds for the Mokala National Park bantam light aircraft.
In the wake of the current poaching crisis across South Africa, a National Park such as Mokala needs to have an active and effective aerial patrol in order to effectively patrol the park. The park is in possession of a Bantam light aircraft, donated by the South African National Parks Honorary Rangers Johannesburg Region, but they do not have the budget to keep the aircraft in the air for as long as it would be necessary.
Flook’s fundraiser raised slightly over R3 500 with more than 180 people pledging their support. This equated to more than 11.5 hours worth of flying time for the Bantam! The funds have been received by SANParks from 1%4 Wildlife and will help our National Park’s anti-poaching team over the next short while.
