Awards for CTEET

The Cape Town Environmental Education Trust (CTEET) received two awards at the 13th annual SANParks Kudu ceremony held on Thursday November 23 at the CSIR Convention Centre in Pretoria. CEO Dr Anthony Roberts was awarded for corporate contribution to conservation in recognition of the trust’s commitment and wide reach in developing young people and imparting environmental knowledge to communities and schools in Cape Town and surroundings. Petro Botha, who manages the Gantouw Project, received the first ever award for the category Women in Conservation, for “sustainable conservation of fynbos through groundbreaking research on using Eland as a management tool (as opposed to fire) to conserve the vegetation of the Cape Flats.” These awards recognise conservationists for their contribution to the protection of the environment in South Africa.
