Help Bokkie spread the wildfire prevention message!

Bokkie is the symbol of wildfire prevention in the Western Cape. Bokkie has appeared on posters, billboards, and other materials to spread the wildfire prevention message. The main goal of Bokkie’s fire education campaign is to reduce the number of human-caused wildfires by promoting safe behaviour when using fire, but they also encourage a sense of personal responsibility for our country’s forests and other spaces with vegetation.
