Over the past six years, the Centre’s attorneys have worked tirelessly using the law to defend the integrity of protected areas, areas of important biodiversity and heritage value, and strategic water source areas, in the interest of all South Africans. To celebrate this work, we are hosting an informal evening with photographer and author Scott Ramsay at our offices in Observatory, Cape Town on Thursday, 24 November 2016 from 18h30-20h00. Scott will be talking about his new book, South Africa’s Wildest Places, and we have a limited number of spaces for people interested in joining us.
South Africa’s Wildest Places is the first large-format book to celebrate all SA’s most special wild places, including all 19 national parks and 11 provincial reserves. Some are world famous, like the Kruger, Kgalagadi and Table Mountain National Parks; others are less well-known, yet equally important both biologically and culturally, like the Mkambati, Kogelberg and Mapungubwe reserves. These special areas are critical for the conservation of unique biodiversity, and because they belong to all South Africans and all generations still to come.
A professional photographer and writer focusing on African parks and conservation, Scott Ramsay spends several months each year exploring the continent’s protected areas. For three years, from 2011 to 2014, he worked with South African National Parks and other conservation organisations, documenting and photographing more than 40 wild places in the country, and interviewing rangers, researchers and communities. He continues to work in African parks and is frequently published in a variety of leading media.
