Conservation South Africa (CSA) het op 3 Desember 2012 hul Love Our Veld veldtog bekend gestel by Leliefontein Intermediêre Skool. Met die veldtog wil CSA die inwoners van die Sukkulente Karoo Streek meer bewus maak van die belangrikheid van ons biodiversiteit en hoe ons as mense dit volhoubaar kan benut, maar ook moet bewaar.
The SKEP Coordination Unit would to wish a peaceful, restful and merry festive season break to all our partners. Our partners all deserve some rest, as the year 2012 has indeed been a very eventful year for the SKEP partnership, with some worthy achievements.
Camera traps have been set up to assist in counting the elusive Riverine Rabbit (Bunolagus monticularis). The rabbit is also known as the Bushman Rabbit or Bushman Hare and is endemic to the semi-arid Great Karoo and parts of the Klein Karoo region of South Africa. The Riverine Rabbit functions as the flagship species as well as a key indicator species for the river ecosystems of the Karoo.
