Today we remember and pay tribute to a truly remarkable leader whose legacy of equality and peace serve as an inspiration for future generations. As well as a much-loved political icon, Madiba was also an advocate for wildlife and conservation. Here he is with fellow Peace Parks founding patrons Anton Rupert and His Royal Highness Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands. The Peace Parks Foundation is a non-profit organisation that aims to establish a network of protected areas across international borders.

Thank you for all you have done, Tata!
