The Friends of Thomas Baines is a civic organisation that aims to assist in the promotion of the Thomas Baines Nature Reserve, close to Grahamstown. Tom the white rhinoceros, who has now moved on to happy grazing grounds, lived in Thomas Baines, and was known far and wide for the exceptional length of his horn. The Friends of Thomas Baines have been instrumental in removing invasive alien plants (IAPs), so that future generations can continue to enjoy the diverse local fauna and thicket vegetation.
Make contact with the reserve Manager, Ms Lelethu Sawuti, lelethu.sawuti(at)ecpta.co.za, 046 622 7043.
Friends of Thomas Baines Chairperson, Mr Quintus Hahndiek, Hahndiek.Quintus(at)dedea.gov.za, 046 622 7216.
