Some media coverage of the work done in partnership with @wwfsouthafrica Ndlovu de Villiers Attorneys and @WildernessFoundationAfrica - securing our nature reserves in KZN in perpetuity, allowing landowners to access the innovative tax benefit #biodiversitystewardship #protectedareas #partnerships #conservationinaction
It’s World Environment Day - we need to celebrate the value of our natural environment, and the fact that all our solutions to a post-Covid society can be found in nature. ITS TIME FOR NATURE. #worldenvironmentday2020
Celebrating 5 years of CONSERVATION ACTION - having the right people in an organisation is absolutely essential, because the conservation sector is predominantly about the people relationships. We are very fortunate to have Sarah Hulley recently join us, who will add her knowledge around the food-energy-water-land-biodiversity nexus, and contribute to our work into the future.
Celebrating 5 years of CONSERVATION ACTION - the biodiversity stewardship mechanism has been developed as a highly successful programme in assisting and supporting private and communal landowners in securing their properties for their conservation values. Conservation Outcomes, together with our partners, have assisted many landowners in this regard, ensuring significant benefits are received by these landowners to support improved management. #biodiversitystewardship @wildernessfoundation @wwfsouthafrica @birdlife_sa @tablemountainfund @wwfnedbankgreentrust
Celebrating 5 years of CONSERVATION ACTION - in 2015 we established a partnership with the Greater Kromme Stewardship entity, a collective group of wind farms and the Kromme Enviro-Trust in the Eastern Cape. We have been privileged to have Wentzel Coetzer joined this project as the biodiversity stewardship facilitator, who has been incredible in developing this project into an example of a corporate - environmental partnership. Please see the project details at www.gksinitiative.co.za
Celebrating 5 years of CONSERVATION ACTION - ensuring conservation work becomes part of what we all do requires extraordinary innovation, and we are committed to developing innovative conservation financing, including the development of SMMEs, which we have facilitated through the Greater Kromme Stewardship project in the Eastern Cape, and the development of a protocol for a national venison market, to assist the financing of protected area management, with resourcing through the Nedbank WWF Green Trust - these are just some of the initiatives we are piloting in our work.
Celebrating 5 years of CONSERVATION ACTION - we acknowledge and thank some of our many partners and supporters, we are stronger as an organisation through your support.
