Our logo is adapted from a painting by Phillip Dlamini, 1998, of a purple crested turaco. In traditional Swazi dress, the red feathers feature in the royal headdress, so this bird illustration is not only a symbol for wildlife conservation, but also of cultural heritage.
The ENTC is charged with protecting Eswatini's cultural heritage. This includes protecting sites of cultural or religious significance. Three sites are currently proclaimed National Monuments and twelve are in the process of being proclaimed.
Monuments are of vital importance in educating the public on Eswatini's rich heritage, and are a source of national pride.
Sites for consideration as National Monuments where investigated by Richard Patricks and Bob Forrester in 2001.
These sites include natural sites (scenic, rare flora, flora, geology, etc.) and cultural sites (historic, archaeological, religious, etc.) or a combination of the two.
The following were amongst the most promising:
Note: Border Cave, site of the oldest known hominid/human remains is not in Eswatini, it is in the Ingwavuma district, in northern KwaZulu/Natal, about 100 m from the border with Eswatini.
