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. If we succeed in raising half a million rand by the end of the year from Indiegogo crowd funding it will contribute towards funds required to manage the project over 3 years. Once these management fees have been secured, a further R8.2 million will be invested in the project by the Department of Environmental Affairs, Water Balance(WWF) and the landowners located in the Keurbooms.
Make a difference by contributing your donation big or small on Indiegogo, watch the moving locally made video to be inspired and to contribute now click here. Another great way to get involved is to share the campaign with all your networks.

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.
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.
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
