This is all from one site. Watch this space for more, as we have just set two cameras up on a new farm...
Thank you, Mazda Wildlife Fund, for recognising the importance of the work we are doing and providing us with a loaned project vehicle... a beautiful BT50 double cab 2X4 Mazda bakkie! We are thrilled with this acknowledgement so early on in our development and believe with this platform, we can go from strength to strength!
The right to name a rare Overberg bulb has been sold for £29,200 in the United Kingdom. The naming of the newly-discovered Hesperantha species was auctioned on 31 October. Proceeds of the auction will go to the Overberg Lowlands Conservation Trust (OLCT), an Agulhas Biodiversity Initiative partner.
Today we spent a fantastic day on the Suurbraak Commonage with CREW (Custodians of Rare and Endangered Wildflowers).... we saw so many gems - what a good reminder of why it is so important to conserve these critical lowland habitats.
