Project Overview

After working for four years with the landowners in the Baviaanskloof, Living Lands and Eastern Cape Parks and Tourism Agency (ECPTA) invited Baviaanskloof landowners to engage with the Nuwejaars Wetland Special Management Area (SMA) on the Agulhas Plain. The area is a renowned biodiversity hotspot and an area in which 25 private landowners and local communities work together to collectively manage land for conservation. The main objective of this project/trip was to allow farmers to learn about other alternative land uses and to manage, but more importantly to interact with, Agulhas Plain landowners. This was a great success and a tipping point in the collective action of the Baviaanskloof community. The project was funded by WWF-TMF (Table Mountain Fund) and supported by ECPTA.
