Meet the Wild Bunch and win awesome DVDs!

The dedicated team at work, conserving nature and saving animals' lives.

A team of vets and scientists in South Africa are changing the rules of species preservation in the 21st century. They know that conservation today can’t wait for tomorrow, so they fast track the whole process, making new rules and putting together the best teams for each project.

The team is setting new world records and creating new world firsts, as these scientists raise the bar, and team up with other international scientists to help protect and save threatened species.

Two talented Vaalies, Robert Waldron and Thelma Roos, are part of the team. The end-result is a stunning DVD series, The Wild Bunch, which is available now.

Ster and Vaalweekblad will soon start publishing articles in which we follow this dedicated team to many exciting Southern African locations as they put their lives on the line, and work towards protecting and conserving major and little known African species, including elephant, rhino, lion, leopard, bushbabies, cheetah, Kalahari pangolins, Cape Vultures, wild dogs and more.

Robert Waldron, who resides in Midvaal, is an international award winning television documentary and commercials writer and director, as well as a published novelist and author. He has produced and written over 50 television documentary scripts in the genres of sociology, travel, natural history, and general history. He has produced films for Discovery Europe, National Geographic, Animal Planet, Curiosity Stream, and many other broadcasters worldwide.

Robert is the founder and owner of the production company Wild Dog Productions, which he has run for the past 20 years.

Make sure to buy Vaalweekblad in January 2018 to follow this exciting series of articles.

Lucky winners stand a chance to win DVDs in regular easy competitions, but if you don’t want to wait for the competitions, you can already purchase any one of The Wild Bunch episodes on DVD for R79 each, excluding postage and packaging, or via a download for R30.

The whole 13 episode DVD series is available on special for R999 until December 31 this year – an ideal Christmas gift for nature lovers. Visit Wild Dog Productions at or send an email to for more information.
