Limpopo National Park Supports Vespas Soccer Team

Mr Tomas Meque, LNP Community Department Operations Manager, hands over the banners and soccer kits to the Vespas team

As part of Limpopo National Park’s initiatives to foster relationships with surrounding communities and to raise awareness of the increasing poaching threats faced by the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, the park, with support from Peace Parks Foundation, sponsored the purchase of new soccer kits for the local Massingir soccer team, the Vespas.

The Vespas team’s kit now displays the Limpopo National Park emblem and rhino anti-poaching awareness banners will be displayed at their soccer matches, which are played both at home in Massingir and regionally as far afield as Xai Xai on the coast.

This awareness campaign follows on the earlier one where the park had contracted a Massingir theatre group to raise awareness on rhino poaching amongst the communities in and around Limpopo National Park.
