The Scroll of Unity in Conservation…
Wayne carried with him a “Scroll of Unity in Conservation” which was signed by representatives of SANParks in each of the 19 National Parks around the country.
The scroll, as the name suggests, will represent our unity and common objective to make the world a better place by protecting and managing what we have.
The One Land Love It Expedition will covered approximately 6000kms in approximately 78 days.
A slogan attached to the Expedition is
this is a call to action!
Wayne’s children cycled part of the route with him and his wife, father. mother and father-in-law were part of his support team. The responsibility for solving this problem does not rest with one generation but is both Wayne’s and his children’s. We have to work together, old and young, to protect and maintain our God-Given natural heritage.
Careful management of our environment will have a positive spin off besides the obvious benefit of protecting what is ours. South Africa has enormous tourism potential. Communities living near our parks, and South Africans in general, will benefit through increased tourism and the concomitant increase in spend and job creation.
