We work with various Local and Provincial Government, Planning, Engineering and Management authorities and officials providing Environmental Impact Assessments.
We organise”a hacking group” (clearing of exotic invasive plants and trees). With the correct management, previously infested lands may, return to a once original condition, with very little human intervention. The reason is; – often the seed stock has been suppressed into dormancy.
We are directly and indirectly involved with education at Zandvlei Nature Reserve, False Bay Nature Reserve, Edith Stephens Nature Reserve, Paarden Eiland Wetlands (Zoarvlei), Table Bay Nature Reserve and others.
Our active conservation committee meet every 6 weeks and are very involved at all levels. We sit on Advisory Committees to 3 City of Cape Town Nature Reserves. We work with Local and Provincial Government, media involvement, networking with other conservation role players, co-ordinating a range of conservation activities and much more.
Over the years we have helped fund many conservation initiatives that have grown into larger efforts. We are involved with various awards that help to motivate exceptional students & recognise individual’s conservation efforts.
2 February marks the celebration of World Wetlands day, the date of
signing of the Ramsar Convention on wetlands in 1971. The City of
Cape Town’s False Bay Nature Reserve became the first reserve
within the City’s boundaries to secure designation as a Ramsar site.
The Ramsar Convention is an intergovernmental treaty that provides
the framework for national action and international cooperation for
the conservation and wise use of wetlands and their resources.
Thank you to everyone involved for your efforts, you made this happen!
