New quirky series gives you the lowdown on how to Respect Nature

Ever booked accommodation or a campsite at a CapeNature reserve? Then you would know that we try to equip you as best we can before your arrival with lots of information. Amongst these would be the do’s and don’ts when in a nature reserve. However, not all of us are avid readers and sometimes these very important messages get lost in emails. The result is that we still find visitors littering, starting illegal fires and transgressing a number of “rules”.

CapeNature’s Learning & Awareness team put on their creative caps and created content to teach visitors how to respect nature. The result is four quirky, one-minute videos, Respect Nature, starring our beloved Mbali, alias Keen Conservationist (also the protagonist in our LoveNature with Mbali series) and Clint, Danger Ranger. The premise is catchy slapstick (think Starsky and Hutch of the 70s), but with a serious message. And it is available with subtitles in Afrikaans and isiXhosa.

Follow Mbali and Clint as they investigate numerous crime scenes with regards to waste, access, fire awareness and fauna and flora, giving the audience tips as they go. Watch the videos here and spread the word!
