Founded in 1926, the Wildlife and Environment Society of SA is South Africa's oldest and largest non-government, membership-based environmental organisation. WESSA maintains a watchful eye on the South African environment through its extensive network of Regional Offices , Branches , Friends Groups and Environmental Clubs.

WESSA's vision is to achieve a South Africa which is wisely managed by all to ensure long-term environmental sustainability.

To this end we promote public participation in caring for the Earth.

Professional environmental staff are employed to work directly with the public, local, provincial and national government and with other environmental organisations for the protection of the environment. WESSA is represented on many National and Regional conservation bodies and investigatory commissions, and is a founder member of the World Conservation Union (formerly the International Union for the Conservation of Nature - IUCN).

WESSA has been, and continues to be, a motivating force behind many of South Africa's most significant environmental decisions . These and other achievements are as a result of the voices and actions of ordinary South Africans - people who have been willing participants in caring for the Earth.

"Tell people - and they may forget...
show them - they may remember...
but involve them and they will understand."
Confucius

Today WESSA remains relevant and influential as both an environmental watchdog and as an educator.

WESSA is a Section 21 company registered as an Incorporated Association not for gain. The Regions elect a National Council, which in turn appoints the Board of Directors.

Hi there!

This is Melanie and I am a certified photographer and illustrator.

I was baffled, frankly speaking, when I came across my images at your web-site. If you use a copyrighted image without my approval, you need to be aware that you could be sued by the owner.

It's illicitly to use stolen images and it's so filthy!

Take a look at this document with the links to my images you used at www.opengreenmap.org and my earlier publications to get evidence of my legal copyrights.

Download it now and check this out for yourself:

If you don't remove the images mentioned in the document above within the next several days, I'll write a complaint on you to your hosting provider stating that my copyrights have been infringed and I am trying to protect my intellectual property.

And if it doesn't work, you may be pretty damn sure I am going to report and sue you! And I will not bother myself to let you know of it in advance.

This is Melanka and I am a qualified photographer.

I was surprised, to put it nicely, when I recognised my images at your web-site. If you use a copyrighted image without an owner's permission, you must know that you could be sued by the copyright owner.

It's against the law to use stolen images and it's so wicked!

And if it doesn't work, you may be pretty damn sure I am going to take it to court! And I won't give you a prior notice again.
