SPAR shoppers who visit Hoedspruit are investing in the education of the youth in the area by helping them learn all about conservation.


Hoedspruit, South Africa – SPAR Hoedspruit has launched a new programme called “Conservation through Education”. They have teamed up with the Endangered Wildlife Trust and Sanparks to educate children about conservation.

A selection of Spar branded products have been earmarked by the grocery shop, and they plan to donate a percentage of the sales to the Endangered Wildlife Trust. The money will then be used to boost their conservation efforts for the African Wild Dog, South Africa’s most endangered carnivore.

The branch has also opened the floor to anyone wanting to sponsor school groups to visit SANParks conservation presentation at Satara in the Kruger National Park.

Their programme is aimed at educating the youth about conservation and how to protect South Africa’s natural heritage.

“The aim is with support from our community to donate a certain percentage of the sales of specified Spar Branded products every month to the Endangered Wildlife Trust to assist with their Conservation work specifically on South Africa’s most endangered carnivore the African Wild Dog.

Please get into contact with us if you want to assist in sponsoring a local school to attend a Sanparks Conservation presentation at Satara in the Kruger Park.” – SPAR Hoedspruit

You will know you are purchasing one of the supported products as there will be an Endangered Wildlife Trust posters pinned up next to the selected items.
