Written by 
kruger National Park's (KNP) HOD: Tourism and Marketing, Ms Lucy Nhlapo has officially launched the "Vukani the Vulture" mascot today, Wednesday (25 July 2012) during the Keep Kruger Clean Campaign. The mascot will assist in keeping Kruger clean by influencing people to change their behaviour about littering in the park.

"It is so important to us, that we cannot stop this campaign because KNP receive more than 1.4 million visitors per year. The increase in the number of people means an increase in the number of many other things, one of which is littering" said Ms Nhlapo.

Keep Kruger Clean campaign been running for the past six years since its launch in 2006. The objectives are to create awareness in the park and outside about the dangers of littering and to educate learners at the young age about the important of clean environment." We want to involve communities, staff, business associates and society at large to say, please help us to keep Kruger clean" concluded Ms Nhlapo.

This year the Keep Kruger Clean campaign was held at the following gates: Punda Maria, Phalaborwa, Orpen, Numbi, and Crocodile Bridge while the main event was at Kruger Gate. The events took place simultaneously under the theme "Collectively striving for a clean Kruger and healthy environment. This allowed school kids from the neighbouring communities to participate at the gate closer to them.
