Table Mountain Fund supports the Green Corridor Vision

The Table Mountain Fund WWF contributes substantially to the Green Corridor project

 

26th September 2016

 

The Table Mountain Fund is a capital Conservation Trust Fund that develops and funds projects to protect and restore the world-famous natural heritage of the Cape, known as Fynbos. These projects range from purchasing important conservation land and engaging landowners in sustainable land management, to funding applied research and supporting civil society to carry out innovative conservation projects in high value conservation areas.

The Grootbos Foundation proudly announces that the Table Mountain Fund has decided to render significant support to develop our flagship conservation project, the Green Corridor.

This new conservation effort is focused on developing a link between the Walker Bay Fynbos Conservancy and Agulhas National Park; thereby preserving the critically endangered lowland fynbos of this unique region in the Overberg.

It is envisaged that this Green Corridor will develop into an ecologically functional and economically viable zone within five years, providing measurable positive conservation results and tangible positive impacts for local communities in a vulnerable region of exceptional conservation value.

We look forward to three years of a mutually productive partnership in a driven effort to preserve our Fynbos for future generations.
