IFAW S. Africa: Animal Action Tree Planting Event

It is said by some people that the word vuvuzela is a rough translation from iziZulu simply meaning “making noise” and that is just what a group of sixty learners from a primary school in Khayelitsha did on 14 April 2010, made noise for trees and our environment.

By making noise, they made their voices heard in celebration of the International Fund for Animal Welfare’s Animal Action Education Programme and our first Tree Planting event, which recently took place in Khayelitsha, Cape Town on a warm autumn day.

Vuvuzela’s are long horns, popularly blown at soccer matches in South Africa. They will become a familiar sound to the world when the soccer world cup comes to South Africa in June 2010.
