All correspondence must be directed to the person advertising.



  • A VERY BIG THANK YOU – To all those amazing people who helped contribute to October’s “Oldies” food boxes our biggest thanks to each of you.  I know times are tough for most at the moment but your kindness and generosity just never fails, for this we and the “Oldies” are so grateful.  We won’t be packing a November box BUT instead an early Christmas box in December.  If you would like to assist in making this box a really special box, we would be most greatful.  We also like to give a few prezzies in this box to make their Christmas extra special, so if you would like to drop off a prezzie that would be wonderful, we have 3 men and 11 ladies in our group.  Thanks so much.


  • URGENT ASSISTANCE IS NEEDED – To the Vic Falls Community – As most of you know, Stan Pullen has been facing the challenges of kidney failure for the past 11 months now. Stan is currently having to travel to Bulawayo twice a week for Haemo Dialysis, and cannot miss a treatment. Paperwork is being processed for a kidney transplant to be carried out in India, however he has to be on dialysis until such time the India trip is arranged. We’re unsure of the total costs involved for this operation, but have an estimated figure of $25 000.00. In order to assist Stan with the expenses involved, organisers have compiled a Fundraising Raffle, and we would like to thank the business community & sponsors for the prizes received to date. Tickets cost $5 each and the prizes include complimentary hotel accommodation & meals at various outlets, helicopter flights, Sunset Cruises, Elephant Rides, etc., Christmas food hampers and lot’s lot’s more. For anyone interested in buying a ticket or contributing other means of help, i.e. transportation to & from Bulawayo, please email gover@yoafrica.com for the organisers details.

  • KASANE SPCA CHRISTMAS RAFFLE –Currently on the agenda is fundraising for purchase of operating equipment. This will enable us to carry out a monthly sterilisation/vaccination day in Kasane. As I’m sure you’re aware, historically, week long campaigns have run every year relying heavily on international and national assistance in the form of vets and equipment. Monthly campaigns are undoubtedly a more cost effective and efficient way forward.  We’re looking to raise at least P20,000 through a Christmas raffle. Tickets will be strictly limited e.g. 150 tickets at P150 each, dependent on number/value of prizes. Advertising will be through the Chobe E-board and our facebook page and ticket purchase possible via email/online banking as well as through representatives in Kasane and Victoria Falls.  If you did feel able to support us by donating a prize that would be hugely appreciated. Vic Falls Safari Lodge is my personal favourite and would definitely get me buying!



The first combined property auction to take place Wednesday 20th November 2013. Venue: Ilala Lodge Time: 12noon.

Sabap2 Bird Atlas Project launched in Zimbabwe on 1st February 2013. SABAP2 is the most far reaching bird conservation research project in Southern Africa. If you don`t know the distribution of birds and

how they are changing, you cannot do conservation intelligently and effectively. As a citizen scientist, you can contribute too! Participation in this programme means that you can make a valuable contribution to our

knowledge of birds and to bird conservation. The data are used for our Important Bird Areas Programme, for Environmental Impact Assessments, and for ornithological research projects. But submitting data for

this project is also fun. You will learn a lot about birds, their behaviour and distribution. You will also become part of a larger atlassing community – a community committed to bird monitoring and to bird

conservation. For more details see http://sabap2.adu.org.za

For queries and to register for the Vic Falls workshop email: juliapierini@birdlifezimbabwe.org
