Integrated farming promotes the responsible use of natural resources and addressing challenges using local capacity. After a recent knowledge exchange in the Cedarberg, communal farmers confidently took the lead identifying local issues, formulating intervention measures, mobilizing resources and capacity, and implementing relevant solutions.
The Kafue Flats in southern Zambia is a wetland of international importance. It is a valuable ecosystem facing extreme pressure. Excessive poaching in and around the Kafue Flats wetlands is driving massive wildlife declines. Here is what we are doing.
Three crane species converge within the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa, and crane populations declined severely in this region in the 1980s. And as a result, there have since been considerable conservation efforts focused there, with notably positive results.
The Endangered Wildlife Trust takes a participative, solution-orientated approach to saving species, conserving habitats, and benefitting people, including engaging with communities to share knowledge and find solutions. Much of our work takes place outside formally protected areas, on private and communal farmland. We work with all relevant stakeholders in the various landscapes to integrate conservation and agricultural priorities to ensure that livelihoods remain viable and that biodiversity is protected.
