Wendell's 10th Comrades for Conservation

Wendell's 10th Comrades for Conservation

Personal message

"The 2012 Comrades will be my 10th Comrades Marathon and I hope to make it a record breaking one. Last year I ran my fastest time of 6 hours 49 minutes to win a Silver Medal. This year I hope to win a Wally Hayward Medal by completing the run within 6 hours.I have decided to run this year's Marathon for charity and have chosen the important cause of conservation.

I work within the Robberg Coastal Corridor (RCC), one of the integral eco-corridors of the greater Eden to Addo Corridor Initiative. Situated in the Western Cape, the RCC links the Robberg Peninsula to the Garden Route National Park and is essential for the conservation of bio-diversity and ecological processes which are so threatened by the vagaries of climate change and human encroachment, and also for the preservation of the endangered fynbos.One of my jobs involves the clearing of alien plant species that threaten the survival of the fynbos, so recognising the importance of this, I have decided to dedicate all the money I raise from my run to helping the less advantaged Community of Kranshoek clear its beautiful stretch ofcoast within the RCC, of alien plants. Information of the Robberg Coastal Corridor and the Eden to Addo Corridor Initiative can be accessed on Please will you give generously to this important cause. On my side, I will do my best. Thank you. Wendell McCallum"

Eden to Addo Corridor Initiative

Eden to Addo Corridor Initiative Logo

THE DREAM: The Eden to Addo vision is based on the practical potential within the landscape connecting the Western and Eastern Cape of South Africa. But this vision is guided by a deeper question and dream: What if we could re-establish ancient elephant migration paths across the Cape, what then? What other wildlife will benefit and how would that restore the ecological balance of the region?
