Fynbos Forever: New Projects

Fynbos Forever: New Projects

The Table Mountain Fund’s Fynbos Forever Programme aims to ensure that priority natural ecosystems are healthy and resilient. It includes protection of land and the appropriate management thereof, to allow for future generations to continue to benefit from our unique biodiversity and the services provided by these intact and functional ecosystems. To meet the Fund’s Fynbos Forever Programme objectives, in 2022 TMF put out a call for proposals, and the response was inspiring. After an intensive consultation period, we are proud to announce the following nine projects as our new Fynbos Forever funding recipients:

  1. Safeguarding the Fynbos of the Klein – BirdLife South Africa
  2. Improving Management Effectiveness of Existing Biodiversity Stewardship Protected Areas in the Western Cape – Conservation Outcomes
  3. Breede Estuary Landscape Support: enabling self-sustaining, effective management– Conservation Outcomes and Birdlife South Africa
  4. Endangered Butterflies and Fynbos – EWT
  5. Conserving the Critically Endangered Swartland Shale Renosterveld and Boland Granite Fynbos – Greater Simonsberg Conservancy
  6. The Protection and Restoration of the Critically Endangered Knysna Sand Fynbos – Western Heads-Goukamma Conservancy
  7. Securing 67% of Cape Town’s Biodiversity Network by 2027 – Wilderness Foundation in collaboration with the City of Cape Town
  8. WWF-SA Conservation Champions – WWF-SA
  9. Safeguarding priority ecosystems on the Nuwejaars River Nature Reserve – Nuwejaars River Nature Reserve
