Our first 40 Ways campaign winner is Neal Metha, who offered more than a dozen ideas that encompassed solar power, electric vehicles, guest education and locally produced foods and goods.
Some of these we are already doing. Several of the suggestions we have received fit within the initiatives Big Five already has in place. A prime example is the suggestion of limiting the number of ‘tracking cars’ on safari in Africa. The sight of a mass of vehicles surrounding one or two animals is all too common a sight on safaris today. That very reason inspired Big Five to switch from large lodges to private conservancies in East Africa several years ago.
We encourage you to enter your sustainable ideas. The next segment for entries will close at the end in July.
And, you could win a Nexus tablet!
