In addition to the above, Jeep will contribute R10,000 per vehicle sold to the RPA Public Benefit Organisation.
The Reserve Protection Agency is a progressive conservation non-profit and public benefit organization dedicated to protecting and preserving South Africa’s threatened ecosystems. RPA’s strength comes from the expertise it maintains and the strategic partnerships it forms. RPA strives to link international subject matter experts from all sectors of life that can assist with global biodiversity preservation. Consisting of a diverse team with great experience, RPA continues to build relationships with experts from other sectors to strengthen the revolutionary solution to ecological threats.
RPA’s alliance with the Jeep brand dates back to 2012 when the current partnership was formed. Since then, RPA’s distinctive and eye-catching branded Jeep Wrangler vehicles have become a familiar site on our roads, and probably a less than welcome site (for poachers) in the country’s game reserves where they have been put to good use in the fight against animal poaching.
All Jeep brand vehicles are sold through 45 dealerships nation-wide. The Jeep Wrangler, Wrangler Unlimited, Compass and Patriot, and the soon-to-be-released new Cherokee, are all sold with a 3 year / 100,000 km warranty and maintenance plan. The flagship Jeep Grand Cherokee is sold with a class-leading 6 year / 100,000 km warranty and maintenance plan.
