LATEST PROJECT - WORK, WATER, LIFE CROWD FUNDING CAMPAIGN

Play your part in Eden to Addo Corridor Initiative's next big project which will create 100 much needed jobs, secure the water supply for Bitou and all its communities and restore the Keurbooms River catchment to its natural wilderness state by clearing invasive aliens.


More Work, More Water, More Life! If we succeed in raising half a million rand it will contribute towards the funds required to manage the project over 3 years. Eden to Addo has raised R355 000.00 thus far. With the funds raised we are able to start the project BUT we need a further R196 000.00 to complete the project. The R500 000.00 management fee is required to manage the R 8.2 million for wages and equipment raised from Department of Environmental Affairs, Water Balance (WWF) and the landowners located in the Keurbooms over the next three years. If nothing is done to clear the alien vegetation then the river flow of the Keurbooms, upon which Bitou depends, will be reduced to almost nothing by the year 2025.

This is your opportunity to help secure the future of Plett. Make a difference by contributing your donation big or small, watch the moving locally made video to be inspired and to contribute now. Another great way to get involved is to share the campaign with all your networks and on social media.

OUR VISION

To link three mega-reserves, namely the Garden Route National Park, The Baviaanskloof Mega Reserve and the Addo Elephant National Park by means of natural corridors to protect and restore the integrity of bio-diversity and eco-system functioning.

OUR MISSION

To assist and engage with landowners and all stakeholders to identify and develop a living corridor from Eden to Addo by applying sound land-use practices, encouraging a diversity of environmentally sustainable livelihoods and linking ecological important areas , for the benefit of biodiversity and the extended community

THE DREAM

The Eden to Addo vision is based on the practical potential within the landscape connecting the Western and Eastern Cape of South Africa, but this vision is guided by a deeper question and dream: What if we could re-establish ancient elephant migration paths across the Cape, what then? What other wildlife will benefit and how will that restore the ecological balance of the region.
