WIN BIG!! Naked…

conservationists calendar from Iphithi Nature Reserve 🙂

We are nearing the  festive season and to raise awareness of the Iphithi Nature Reserve in Gillits, the generous (and semi-nude) conservationists have given us three calendars to give away as prizes. If you would like to win one of them and get it posted to your door (in South Africa), please comment below… We will announce a winner a week! mol-d

Here are the details:

In the spirit of preserving this world for all to enjoy, the Iphithi Nature Reserve Committee has released a 2012 calendar with a difference – showing a bit of skin in a lot of nature. The stunning photographs showcase not only the beauty of the habitats within the reserve, but the exhilaration and beauty of being a part of nature. By making themselves vulnerable, the participants are reflecting the vulnerable state in which our actions have placed our precious planet.

The Committee hopes that the calendar will bring attention to all natural environments struggling to exist in urban landscapes, like Iphithi Reserve, a small wildlife sanctuary situated in Edward Drive, Gillitts, and all proceeds will go towards the upkeep and protection of the reserve. The calendar also showcases a variety of our indigenous plants for your garden, as well as a number of environmental awareness days worth celebrating. So, when you buy a calendar, not only will you have something lovely to look at, you will be contributing to a worthy cause! Calendars cost R110 (exc. postage) and are available at The Corner Café, Brand Rd Glenwood, the gift shop at Giba Gorge, the Iron Fist clothing store in Gateway and from committee members in Gillitts. We will also be selling them at the Shongweni Farmer’s Market from this Saturday, 3rd December for those interested.

Visit the Iphithi Facebook page,  or contact Anno Torr, the Chairman of Iphithi Nature Reserve ( / 0726025610), for more information.

Below are some sample pics of the calendar, get commenting!
