Somerset West Wildlife Society (WESSA)
The Wildlife Society is the oldest conservation organisation in SA. Recently it celebrated 80 years of conservation involvement. In the early years it played a vital role in helping to establish the Kruger National Park and lobbying for the creation of other parks such as the Bontebok National Park. Since its beginning the society has been deeply involved in many initiatives and in later years has been involved in Environmental Education. Thus the society lives up to its Mission: promoting public awareness and participation in Caring for the Earth.
The Wildlife Society, Hottentots Holland Branch, is actively involved in conservation and have regular meetings where guest speakers talk about various interesting topics. The talks are very informative and are usually followed up with an outing to places of interest.
Members and visitors are always welcome – do join us.
