CapeNature Stewardship - support the Table Mountain Fund

The Western Cape includes two globally recognised Biodiversity Hotspots, with many threatened ecosystems and exceptional numbers of threatened plant species. Establishment of additional protected areas in the most threatened and under-conserved habitats in the Western Cape are essential. CapeNature is currently using Biodiversity Stewardship as its main mechanism for Protected Area expansion. The Table Mountain Fund will ensure the long term management of new Protected Areas created by the Cape Stewardship Programme.
