Ann Mc Donnell, MPL
DA KZN Spokesperson on Conservation
It is with extreme sadness that the DA in KwaZulu-Natal notes the passing of Dr Ian Player.
We extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends.
What a privilege to have shared a Province with this iconic environmental warrior.
It is thanks to Dr Player’s vision that we are able to enjoy wilderness areas including the Hluhluwe-Umfolozi reserve today, with this and other parks a part of the legacy of this great man.
I am reminded of his last function – handing over the baton of Rhino protection to the youth of the world – timely indeed.
RIP Dr Player.
