The LepSoc team recently manage to sign an agreement with KuneMoya to survey Blouberg Nature Reserve near Vivo. Part of this survey, will also be to train and educate the guides on butterflies.
A team of Gauteng Lepidopertists visited the area over the weekend of 9 to 11 March 2012. It was a fun, hot and dry weekend. We manage to count just over 70 species for the weekend.

Easter is family time. For those who celebrate Easter, may you have a wonderful time with love one's and friends. If you are going a way for Easter, please drive safely and return home safe as well.
And on a not so serious note, but serious enough, if you are a "bunny hugger" just like me, remember to buy your Lindt Gold Bunny as an Easter treat. Remember, by doing so, you will also support a good cause (forget about the hips and the diet for one weekend). EWT in conjunction with Lindt Chocolatiers have a project running to save the Riverine Rabbit. So please support them.
