SER2019 Environmental Offsets Program: The Princess Vlei Restoration Project

SER2019 Environmental Offsets Program: The Princess Vlei Restoration Project Details » Donate Online

The Princess Vlei Restoration Project takes place in the Greater Princess Vlei Conservation Area (GPVCA), a wetland in Cape Town, South Africa. The GPVCA is located in a low-income area, disadvantaged by apartheid spatial planning. Racially discriminatory policies led to the area being neglected by authorities, resulting in the degradation of its ecological integrity. The Forum has initiated a five-year restoration project to rehabilitate and restore three endangered vegetation types on the site. This will enable the conservation of fauna and flora existing on site, reintroduce threatened species that are locally extinct, inspire a new generation of conservationists through practical environmental education, and foster long term community custodianship.
