Projects & Activities


The Botanical Society is involved in a variety of conservation projects which we have undertaken in partnership with other organisations over the years. BotSoc’s conservation programmes were traditionally targeted towards land based projects such as stewardships, where land-owners and conservationists can work together to care for the land by using it sustainably; as well as creating enabling environments for people to learn about biodiversity conservation so that they can appreciate nature and the services that Nature provides for their betterment. These include good supplies of fresh clean water, clean air, food, medicines, etc.

BotSoc has a proud history of responsible conservation and has a long standing association with projects like CREW with SANBI, and the Ekangela Grasslands project and the Biodiversity and Wine Initiative (BWI)  with WWF-SA, which were initiated by the Conservation Unit.
