Fairview-Diamant Conservation Area
The Fairview-Diamant Conservation Area spans approximately 39ha and is home to Endangered Boland Granite Fynbos, as well as a small fragment of Critically Endangered Swartland Granite Renosterveld. Sitting adjacent to unfragmented critically endangered vegetation on neighbouring properties and linked to Paarl Mountain Nature Reserve, its conservation contributes to the ecological management of the broader protected area.
Charles Back and Donald Mouton have been at the helm of managing this conservation area since it was established in 2011. Over time, what started as a per chance engagement has transformed into a powerful demonstration of leadership within their landscape. Their impact extends beyond the Conservation Area, creating positive environmental change that resonates throughout the region.
