Best known as the face of the environmental program, Groen, one of the most-watched programs on kykNET, Dave Pepler has been presenting on environmental issues for almost 10 years.
His lifetime contribution to conservation was recognised in 2001 with a Molteno Medal from the Cape Tercentenary Foundation.
In 2007 his contribution to Zoological science was recognised with the Stevenson Hamilton Award, the highest honour of the Zoological Society of South Africa.
He has travelled widely in the last 40 years, crossing over 4 continents and growing his enthusiasm for the environment while simultaneously developing a concern for what he has experienced. At the core of Dave lies a gift for being able to tell a story and to be able to find light out of darkness, a sense of fun which enables him to view the world optimistically and to share it with those around him.
