About Dave

Dave Pepler is a well-known South African environmentalist . After growing up in Robertson in the Western Cape, he attended the Saasveld Forestry College for a National Diploma in Forestry, and also received an MPil in Zoology from Cambridge (UK).

Dave Pepler is best known as the face of Groen, one of the icons of KykNET. He has been presenting this environmental programme for almost 10 years and it has become one of the most watched programmes on TV in South Africa. However Groen represents only a small part of Dave’s interests, activities and contributions.

Ek is eerstens ‘n natuurkundige en dan ‘n voëlkundige; juis daarom boei die oorspronklike geskrifte van die vroeë reisigers en versamelaars my so.

-Dave Pepler
