The conservancy's efforts were praised on social media:

Louise Swart commented: "Thank you NATION BUILDERS."

Babs van der Westhuizen shared a similar experience:

"We experienced this ourselves too in Stilbaai with my husband's brother, Ben, who is in a wheelchair. Two young lifesavers showed up out of nowhere, lifted him onto the beach wheelchair en took him down to the ocean. They even wanted to take him into the sea, but he was a little frightened. He also wasn't the only one. On that day, there were two other people whose day was made. We were all so thankful for this. Thank you to these men and everyone else who walks the extra mile for someone else."
