Today I collected my sign board to alert motorists about African Bull Frogs crossing the road in Soekmekaar, a small town in Tzaneen. There aren’t many places where these creatures are seen in Limpopo and even South Africa, they are threatened by cars especially in Soekmekaar. There is a busy road right next to the stream where they live and I decided to get a sponsor for a sign board and arrange for such a road sign to be put up to alert motorists to drive slowly.
I will have this sign board up by Sunday 11 Aug’13 when I do my clean-up at this stream. There is so much litter here which also poses a dangerous threat to these endangered species.
Thank you to Vixtrix Signs in Tzaneen for sponsoring me this sign board of R1500 and helping me with all the rules and regulations for road signs etc. I hope that this will minimise the amount of frogs being killed by motorists and I will continue to contribute towards the conservation of these frogs.
I had the privilege to be interviewed by GTFM on 31 July’13. David Moruthane is a well-known presenter and he is also known as DJ Hypesta. I had a very nice and long interview. Thank you so much to the amazing staff at GTFM for always making me feel so at home.
This interview gave me the opportunity to tell Limpopo more about my journey as a Miss Earth SA National Finalist 2013. I used this opportunity to give some tips to all the listeners on how to save our earth by replacing incandescent light bulbs with energy efficient CFL’s, recycling, saving electrity, water etc. I also asked them to each plant a tree to encounter their carbon footprint.
David asked me so many questions which was great because I got the opportunity to really tell people all about the wonderful Miss Earth SA brand and all our great initiatives to combat the destruction of our natural heritage. He knew that I’m a singer as they played my music before and he made me sing on air acapella which was awesome!
They were also kind enough to come onboard as one of my sponsors to sponsor me adverts on air for my high tea and other projects to the value of R5200 per day and they are willing to run this for 20 days. Thank you so much to the station manager Tebatso for this generous sponsorship.
